Wrongful Death Claim Damages

The emotional and financial impacts caused by the unexpected death of a loved are often significant and debilitating. A wrongful death claim is meant to help restore the finances of the deceased person’s surviving family members and loved ones by seeking both economic and noneconomic damages.

Economic damages we may be able to secure for you include:

  • Medical expenses related to injuries or illnesses suffered by the deceased person due to the mistakes of the liable party.
  • Funeral and burial expenses paid by the surviving family members to honor the memory of the deceased.
  • Total value of the support and services that the deceased had regularly given to their family, such as average weekly wages.
  • Cost of financial benefits earned or held by the deceased person, such as retirement or investment plans gained through employment.

Noneconomic damages we can cite in your wrongful death claim could include:

  • Emotional harm caused by the loss of companionship, support, guidance, and/or consortium provided by the deceased to family members.
  • Severe grief suffered if you are a parent who lost a young child.

It is important to know that some damages can be paid to the claimants who filed the wrongful death claim and others will be paid to the estate of the deceased. With our Tampa wrongful death lawyers managing your claim, you can rest assured that we will calculate the damages to reflect the maximum amount allowable.
