Compensation for Family Members
While no amount of monetary compensation can make up for such a loss, it
can help ensure surviving relatives and those dependent on them secure
the compensation needed to cover damages and their future needs. Damages
differ from cases to case, and state to state, but wrongful death claims
may generally allow victims to recover compensation for:
- Expenses such as medical and funeral bills
- Loss of care, companionship, or protection
- Loss of financial support, including benefits
- Other relevant financial and emotional damages
Time Limits on Filing a Claim
It is important to note that there are time limits on filing wrongful death
claims. Known as the statute of limitations, these time limits could prevent
surviving family members from being able to pursue legal action and recover
compensation. This is why it is important to contact a lawyer as soon
as possible to discuss your rights.
