What kind of settlement can I expect with a wrongful death claim?
No matter the situation, if your loved one died through the negligence of another, the reality is that his or her loss can leave you without a first or second income, and facing a pile of medical bills. There are monetary and emotional losses that you may face as well such as:
- Loss of primary or secondary income
- Overwhelming medical expenses
- Loss of work benefits
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering including depression
- Loss of parental guidance and support
The above losses and expenses are considered damages when it comes to wrongful death claims in Boca Raton. For the economic damages, a dollar amount will be assigned to your case. Punitive damages may also be applicable in cases where a defendant’s conduct may have resulted in wrongful death. Remember, the two years to file a wrongful death claim is shorter than the four years for a personal injury claim.
