We understand that nothing can ever replace a loved one. However, filing a wrongful death claim can help you provide for the needs of family members. Have you suffered a loss and are interested in filing a claim? If so, find out the most frequently asked questions regarding wrongful death cases.
Question #1: Is it possible to file a wrongful death claim for a child or an elderly person?
Answer: Yes, it is possible to file a claim for a child or elderly person. Be aware that the damage awards are usually not as high as they would normally be.
Question #2: Can you sue for the pain and suffering of a deceased loved one?
Answer: Yes. Family members can secure compensation for the pain and suffering that their loved one experienced before they passed away.
Question #3: Can a person file a wrongful death claim for a person who did not work?
Answer: Yes. After all, this person could have provided for the family in another way. A good example of this is a stay-at-home mom. They may not have contributed monetarily, but they raised the children and helped out around the house. These household tasks can qualify as pecuniary losses.
