If you have lost a spouse or family member due to the negligent act of another, the Todaro Law Office may be able to help you receive compensation for your losses.
Wrongful death claims help provide families with the financial support needed to cover damages associated with the death of a loved one. Wrongful death claims involve many types of fatal accidents. They exist when a person dies due to the legal fault of another person or entity. Immediate family members such as spouses, children, or parents of the deceased can file a wrongful death claim.
Surviving family members may be able to seek the following types of compensation:
• Funeral Expenses
These expenses include things such as funerals, burial expenses, and death certificates.
• Loss of Companionship, Guidance and Support
Loss of companionship is an actionable injury for which money damages may be awarded. This includes the loss of love, intimate relations, and services of a spouse.
• Non-Economic Damages (Pain and suffering)
Pain and suffering related to a wrongful death case is the physical and emotional stress caused from the death of a loved one.
• Economic Damages
Economic damages related to a wrongful death case are financial damages incurred by family members as a result of the death of a loved one. These damages include medical bills, lost wages, pension benefits and inheritance.
