Types of Damages Recoverable in a Wrongful Death Claim in Greenacres
When a person or business engages in negligible behavior resulting in a wrongful death, children, spouses, parents, and other relatives dependent on the decedent for support can pursue a legal cause of action within two years from the incident for a broad range of damages to recover pecuniary losses.
Damages can also be recovered by beneficiaries of the decedent’s estate, though the type and amount are less significant than those recoverable by surviving family members.
If the decedent’s injuries were not immediately fatal, claimants can also file a separate personal injury claim, or a claim the victim could have filed had he or she survived the incident of negligence.
The wrongful death attorneys at the Shiner Law Group identify the most common damages sought by family members and estate beneficiaries in a Greenacres wrongful death legal proceeding:
- Pain and suffering.
- Lost income, benefits, or inheritance.
- Loss of protection, household services, or support.
- A child’s loss of instruction and guidance.
- Medical bills, funeral costs, and burial expenses (if paid for by the claimant).
- Punitive damages.
