Each state is different when it comes to damages that can be collected in a wrongful death case. However, in general, family members are entitled to seek compensation for:
- Medical expenses prior to death
- End of life expenses including funeral costs
- Projected lost wages and benefits
- Projected future financial contributions for mortgage, tuition, and similar expenses
- Loss of companionship
- Emotional suffering
Some of these damages are economic and can be easy to calculate. Others, such as loss of companionship, cannot easily be monetized and are often intentionally overlooked by insurance companies seeking to offer a quick settlement. The wrongful death attorneys at The Cochran Firm will work closely with your family to fully understand the impact of your loss. And we will fight tooth and nail to ensure your family is provided the full compensation you are due.
If you have lost a loved one in any type of accident, please contact the experienced wrongful death attorneys at The Cochran Firm today. We maintain offices in several major cities, better enabling us to represent families who have suffered loss throughout the country.
