Types of Compensation for Wrongful Death Claims

An unexpected death caused by another person’s negligence can cause a number of different types of emotional and financial hardships on family members of the deceased. This is why wrongful death lawsuits exist. Prior to the advent of wrongful death suits, there was no way to hold a negligent person accountable for his or her fatality-causing actions in a civil court.

The death of a family member or loved one is always tragic, but there is an added degree of emotional turmoil when the death could easily have been prevented if it were not for another person’s negligent actions. If your loved one died as a result of someone else’s negligence, contact your Iowa wrongful death attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233 to begin seeking justice.

Wrongful Death Damages

Damages that can be sought by family members in a wrongful death case vary from state to state, but most states include the following:

  • Sorrow and mental anguish from the loss of companionship
  • Loss of income from the victim
  • Loss of services
  • Loss of victim’s future earnings
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses

Although winning a lawsuit will not take away the pain of losing a loved one, it can make dealing with the aftermath a lot easier.
