What Damages Are Awarded In A Wrongful Death Case?

Two categories of Wrongful death claims are possible. The first considers damages suffered by the victim before dying and the second takes into account damages accrued by the plaintiff as a result of their loved one’s death. Economic damages are compensation for economic losses that have been incurred, such as medical bills and missed income. Non-economic damages refer to subjective losses the decedent and their loved ones endured, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. The compensation granted in a wrongful death lawsuit is determined by the circumstances of the case and the breadth of the individual’s losses.

When a loved one loses his or her life as a result of another person’s negligence, family members may bring a lawsuit for damages. Thousands of people and billions of dollars in losses occur each year in the United States owing to numerous causes that might lead to a wrongful death claim.

According to the National Center for State Courts (NCSC), more than one in five medical malpractice claims involve wrongful death, and these claims are among the most financially devastating for survivors. Car accidents are one of the main causes of preventable deaths, which is why they frequently lead to cases involving wrongful death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 40,000 deaths occurred on American roadways in 2017 alone. A lawyer may assist relatives of decedents in deciding whether or not they qualify for a wrongful death lawsuit for the losses suffered as a result of their loss.

Personal Injury Damages Owed To The Decedent

The individual who files a wrongful death claim is often looking for the compensation that the deceased would have received if they were to live through the event that caused their fatal injuries. These sorts of compensatory damages cover the losses incurred between the time when the incident that caused the injuries occurred and when the victim died.

  • Medical Expenses

If the deceased received emergency medical treatment or incurred other healthcare expenses due to an accident or assault perpetrated by someone else, you might be eligible for compensation for their expenditures.

  • Lost Wages

Due to the severity of their injuries, many accident victims, medical malpractice victims, and other unlawful death claimants miss work time. Even after the deceased has passed, their loved ones might be eligible to get compensation for the money that would have been earned by the decedent if he or she had been able to work afterwards.

  • Pain And Suffering

Personal negligence victims frequently sue for the physical, mental, and emotional harm they suffer as a result of the wrongful death. Those who file wrongful death claims for their circumstances may be eligible for financial compensation to assist with their pain and suffering.

Additional Damages Caused By The Loss Of The Decedent


When a victim of another person’s carelessness loses their life, surviving family members may be eligible for compensation for the losses they have incurred since the deceased’s death. These might include financial damages as well as mental and emotional anguish caused by their loss.

  • Funeral And Burial Expenses

The FTC claims that funerals in the United States are generally made up of numerous services and expenses. Caskets, for example, may cost anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000. While the FTC encourages consumers to compare prices at several funeral homes, families who have just lost a loved one may not have enough emotional energy to focus on finding the greatest financial value, and burial and funeral costs might mount up quickly. As a result, wrongful death claims frequently include a request for the cost of burying the deceased.

  • Loss Of Future Wages

Surviving spouses and children of those who died for work typically seek compensation for the decedent’s missed future earnings in a wrongful death lawsuit. This form of award allows loved ones to rely on the deceased for financial aid after they are no longer able to support themselves.

  • Loss Of Consortium

Loss of companionship is a term used to describe the loss of a spouse’s company in some jurisdictions. In some states, the plaintiff in a wrongful death lawsuit may claim loss of companionship, also known as loss of consortium. When someone loses their spouse, especially at the hands of another individual, they may suffer emotional trauma that can be devastating.
