Wrongful Death LAwsuit

Wrongful death accidents occur where someone dies as the result of another's negligent actions. These are actually damages that are recovered in other lawsuits. A wrongful death personal injury claim is brought by the victim's family. Wrongful death lawsuits can occur where a person dies as the result of injuries sustained in a car accident that was caused by someone else.

Wrongful death actions are very emotional lawsuits as a loved one is now lost. Types of damages that can be recovered in this type of loss include the wages that the deceased would have made in his life to benefit the wife, children, or other family members they supported. Additionally, loss of consortium claim by the wife is often made in these types of actions. A loss of consortium is loss of companionship claim for help that the other spouse would have done around the house and love they brought to the relationship.

The wage loss is computed by determining the type of profession the deceased was in, their working life age of a typical person in that field, and the present value of that total. These cases are often very complex and require many experts to testify as to the wages the person would have made and accident recreationalists to show how the accident occurred.
