Compensation in a Wrongful Death Claim
If you lost a family member because of another person's negligence or wrongdoing, it is important to talk to a lawyer, particularly if the victim was a major source of income for your family. You have already suffered enough. There is no reason why you should suffer financially as well. We can help your protect your future and your children's futures. In some cases, we are able to negotiate settlements in the form of annuities in order to provide for minor children left behind by the deceased.
- You may be entitled to compensation for the following losses, among others:
- Loss of the victim's income, benefits, inheritance, future earnings
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of service, protection, love, and assistance
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses
- Any property damage associated with the victim's death
