Wrongful Death Case Value
Wrongful death case value varies depending on the circumstances surrounding your loss. Watch this video to learn more about how it is determined.
How do I determine the value of a wrongful death claim?
It’s difficult to determine what a wrongful death case is worth. There are so many factors that are involved. For instance, if you have a 30-year marriage and your spouse has been taken away from you, that’s different than if you had a one-year marriage. It also depends on how much money one spouse made, and how much the lost income will be for the rest of your life.Also, it’s the circumstances of the wreck or accident. Was it a painful situation? How much time did the person who passed away live? How much time were they conscious? Did they know what was happening to them? How many members of the family did they support? How many children did they have? Were they married? Were they single?
All these factors along with medical bills, which can be very expensive, all go into account. There’s only really one group of people who will decide what your wrongful death case is worth; a jury. We have to prepare our case to help them understand what your losses are, what they can award damages for. Then we can help them come up with a value for us.
