A wrongful death settlement is the monetary compensation offered after a wrongful death claim or a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death lawsuit claims that the victim was killed as a result of carelessness on the part of the person or company being sued, and that the victim’s survivors are thus entitled to money as a result of the negligence.
How Much Money Can I Receive in a Wrongful Death Settlement?
The types of monetary settlements that may be available to you in a wrongful death lawsuit include the following:
- Medical bills and funeral expenses connected to the death
- Loss of earnings between the time of the death and the expected retirement
- Other damages such as loss of benefits like pension plans, medical coverage, and so on
- Damages for emotional trauma or pain and suffering of the survivors
- Loss of care, protection, nurturing, and companionship of the survivors
If your loved one was killed in a fatal car accident that they didn’t cause, you might be eligible to fight for a wrongful death settlement. In order to get there you might want to hire a wrongful death lawyer to argue your case.
