What Compensation is Available in a Wrongful Death Claim or Lawsuit?

There are a few considerations when determining the value of a wrongful death case: The earning capacity of the deceased (now and into the future); the pain and suffering endured; and the loss of enjoyment of your loved one's companionship, comfort and support.
If the person you lost was a breadwinner or wage-earner who contributed substantially to your family's income and financial stability, it will almost certainly be necessary to document not only the contribution they made in the past, but also the contribution they would likely have made in the future. To this end, the team at Sahady Associates can draw upon the skills of economists and other financial experts to quantify the amount of financial contribution your family has lost.
The loss of consortium — or the enjoyment you and your family took from the presence of your loved one — can be more difficult to define. That is why we take the time to get to know you and your family. We try to build a picture of the more intangible contribution your loved one made before the accident. Our extensive trial experience makes it possible for us to confidently present to the court or the insurance company the true impact of the negligence or wrongful act that caused your loved one's death.
