Information on Wrongful Death Damages

Like in any case for negligence, there are three types of damages that can be recovered in a wrongful death case.

Economic Damages:

The first type of damages that can be recovered in wrongful death cases are economic damages. These include medical expenses, loss of earnings, loss of benefits and loss of inheritance. Economic damages are damages that can be scientifically determined, and are exact in nature.

Non-economic Damages:

The second type of damages available in wrongful death cases are non-economic damages. These include loss of care, mental anguish, pain and suffering, loss of love, society and companionship. These are damages that differ based on the evaluator.

Exemplary Damages:

The third category of damages recoverable in wrongful death cases are called exemplary damages, commonly known as punitive damages. These types of damages come into play when the acts or omissions of the defendants were malicious or grossly negligent. Exemplary damages are only recoverable when there is a gross negligence claim.
