If you have lost a loved one in an accident, you may think that nothing could compensate for their death. This is very true; however, the responsible party should still be held accountable for their negligence. Immediate family members and dependents of anyone killed in an accident have the right to file a wrongful death claim within two years of their death.
Such a claim will require the negligent party to cover funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, grief counseling fees, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship/consortium.
Some of these damages have a set monetary value and are easily calculated. Other wrongful death damages, such as pain and suffering or loss of companionship/consortium, are emotional damages and are harder to translate into monetary value.
