Damages determined by a court or jury for a wrongful death will be determined based on the relationship and dependency of the survivors to the wrongful death victim. The damages available to claim for a wrongful death vary between states. The actual amount of wrongful death damages will be awarded based on the actual losses experienced by each particular survivor.

There are different kinds of damages that survivors of a wrongful death victim can recover in a wrongful death claim. After first establishing that a wrongful death did occur, survivors can claim compensation for medical and funeral expenses, loss of earnings and benefits caused by the loss, loss of inheritance lost, pain and suffering, as well as the loss of love and companionship. These wrongful death claims must be demonstrated by the history of relationship both financially and emotionally between the survivors and deceased.
The Estate will sometimes seek compensation for the wrongful death for any loss of estate due to any potential financial accumulation that may have occurred had the tragedy not arisen. The wrongful death damages will be evaluated after understanding what governing statutes apply to each individual survivor. Determining non-financial loss requires a very deep understanding of the relationships between the survivors and the wrongful death victim and must have some type of proof to back it up. These types of claims and damages make wrongful death cases much different then other types of litigation, making it especially necessary to find a lawyer that has proven success and knowledge in this area of law.
