What is the potential value of a wrongful death claim?

Posted in and tagged by Ken Wilhelm

No amount of financial compensation can adequately replace the life of a loved one. A successful wrongful death claim can, however, provide a family with much needed financial support during a difficult time.
There are many factors that must be considered when calculating the value of a wrongful death claim. Was someone liable? Did the victim have a job? How long was the victim planning to work before retirement? Compensation may be available for lost future income. Other factors that will be considered include the victim’s life expectancy, his or her health, age, habits, past earnings and benefits. The families of wrongful death victims can also seek compensation for a number of other economic and non-economic losses.
