In cases of wrongful death, a victim's immediate family members (spouse, children, and parents) can file suit against the responsible party. If you want to file a claim for wrongful death against someone, it is important that you obtain legal counsel immediately to be eligible for damages. The age and health of the wrongful death victim, their annual earnings, and personal expenses are all taken into account when determining compensation in wrongful death cases. Compensation in wrongful death cases includes medical and funeral expenses, loss of future earnings, loss of benefits such as pension and medical insurance, loss of inheritance, and pain and suffering. Non-economic damages, such as loss of love and companionship, are sometimes also awarded in wrongful death cases.
