Nothing can replace the loss of a loved one but an experienced Las Vegas wrongful death lawyer can help you receive the compensation you need to relieve the financial burden caused by an unexpected death in the family.
Wrongful death cases are similar to personal injury cases in that the party seeking damages must prove negligence caused a person’s death whether it was the result of a car accident, an incident brought about by unsafe premises or the use of a defective product. If negligence is proven, the deceased’s heirs have a legal right to recover damages from the party responsible.
Three Categories of Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Damages for a successful wrongful death lawsuit are awarded in the following three categories:
- Economic Compensation – This includes any expenses incurred for medical treatment, expenses to cover funeral arrangements and future lost wages.
- Punitive Damages – These damages are only awarded if the circumstances that led to the death were a result of a gross act of wrongdoing or negligence, such as Driving Under the Influence.
- Non-Economic Compensation – This includes damages for the victim’s pain and suffering as well as compensation for the loved ones’ grief and loss of companionship.
