Dealing with Wrongful Death

Compensation for Wrongful Death

The loss of a loved one that can be labeled as wrongful death according to the law will allow you to file a lawsuit for compensation. This compensation could be in the millions and depends on the actions of the at-fault party that led to your loved one’s death. Some forms of compensation you can seek in a wrongful death case include the following:

  • Lost wages of your loved one
  • Loss of future wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

Punitive damages are damages awarded by the judge assigned to the case. These damages are enforced against the at-fault party in the hopes that the defendant will not commit the same actions in the future.

Did you suffer the loss of a loved one because someone else made a poor decision, broke a law, or simply acted negligently? If so, it’s important for you to speak with an experienced wrongful death attorney in Escondido about your situation. Call the office at 619-543-1789 to schedule a consultation about your case.
