Calculating Damages for Wrongful Death Cases
After you've lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of another person or entity, our attorneys will work with experts to determine the accurate value of your claim. In some cases, the family of the deceased person may be entitled to the following types of non-economic and economic losses:
- Loss of future income
- Loss of benefits
- Loss of pension
- Loss of guidance
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral costs
- Burial expenses
- Loss of inheritance
- Medical care bills
In order to calculate damages after this type of accident, the attorney may conduct an investigation into the victim's employment history, medical expenses, and other relevant financial information. Additionally, the attorney may consult with economists and financial experts to estimate the future financial losses suffered by the victim's family as a result of the victim's death.
In determining the amount of wrongful death compensation to be awarded, the attorney will consider the victim's age, health, and life expectancy, as well as the victim's relationship with the surviving family members. This may include evaluating the value of household services, such as childcare, and the loss of emotional support and affection.
Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations
There is a statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death lawsuit in California, so it is important to act quickly. You will have two years from the date of the decedent’s passing to pursue compensation. If you fail to meet this deadline, you will be barred from pursuing compensation for your losses.
