Types of Wrongful Death Incidents

Wrongful death claims allow family members to seek compensation if another party’s negligence was the cause of their loved one’s death. However, a wrongful death claim does not cover all deaths caused by another. Wrongful deaths are filed based on the circumstances of the accident.

Below are some examples of what can qualify for a wrongful death claim:

To determine if you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim, you can contact a Beaumont wrongful death attorney for a free case review.

What Damages Can Be Claimed After a Wrongful Death?

The loss of a loved one is one of the most challenging moments in a person’s life. Losing a loved one is overwhelming. It is even more difficult when their loved one’s death could have been prevented. Families going through this challenging moment are entitled to seek compensation for their loss. Monetary compensation won’t bring back a loved one, but it can help a family find a financial path forward after experiencing the unthinkable.

Here are the three general types of compensations for a wrongful death claim:

  • Economic Damages - Families have the right to receive compensation for the expenses related to their family member’s death. This can include funeral bills and the deceased’s future earnings and benefits.
  • Non-Economic Damages - Families can also be compensated for the pain, suffering, and mental anguish. Non-economic damages also include loss of inheritance and loss of consortium.
  • Punitive Damages - In some cases, families receive additional compensation as a form of punishment for the parties responsible.

Wrongful Death FAQ

What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?

A wrongful death occurs when a person is killed by the negligent behavior of another party. The person responsible can then be held liable under common jurisdiction. Filing a wrongful death claim allows family members to sue for compensation for the loss of their loved one if their death was caused by another person’s negligence. Even if the person responsible is already being held accountable in a criminal court, wronged loved ones can seek compensation in a civil claim. It is important to keep in mind that if a company is responsible for your loved one's death, a wrongful death claim will be the only way they'll be held accountable in court.
