Working with an attorney you can rely on can make a difference in your settlement amount.
How Much Are Wrongful Death Lawsuits Worth?
Wrongful death lawsuits vary in how much they are worth. It depends on the case and the prevailing circumstances. However, money is not the first concern when you lose someone you love. There is too much grief and pain in the way, and figuring out who should pay for medical and funeral expenses is often not the biggest priority. As the shock of the loss begins to fade, there is the desire for justice for the missing family member. In most cases, that means the desire for fair compensation that can cover expenses such as:
- The cost of any medical treatment your loved one received before death.
- The funeral and burial expenses your family incurred.
- The future earnings that were lost when your loved one died.
- The mental pain and suffering of your loved one before death.
Because many variables go into a wrongful death case, working with a trusted and qualified attorney like Frank McCoy Jr. is the best way to ensure you are getting compensation for your loved one that is fair and just. Nothing can bring your loved one back, but it is essential to establish the final expenses, medical treatments, and any other financial and emotional damage created by their loss for as much compensation as possible.
