What are the benefits available in a wrongful death claim?
We had a large wrongful death case, unfortunately, with a very big family in the Tampa area. Their family member was unfortunately the victim of a wrongful death in a car accident, and they asked what the recoverable damages were in a case like that. Basically, there are two categories of recoverable damages – those that are recoverable by the estate for the person who unfortunately passed away and those damages that are recoverable by the survivors. The statute specifically delineates various members – sometimes minor children, the surviving spouse, for instance – who are entitled to damages. What kinds of damages, then, is the question.
There are various types of damages that are delineate throughout the statute. To determine what you qualify for, you need a lawyer who is well-versed in the wrongful death statute. Give us a call, if your family member has been the victim of a wrongful death, and we will evaluate your case, including the damages elements.
