Determining Recoverable Damages

Surviving family members of the deceased are entitled to the recovery of both economic and noneconomic damages. These categories include compensation for things that you may not know to consider without the help of a lawyer. Medical expenses are of course recoverable, but so are future lost earnings, grief and sorrow. Schedule a consultation with Drew Wills for a free case evaluation to assess the damages that your family may be eligible to recover.

Not everyone can file on behalf of the deceased. There are distinct provisions stating who can and cannot file for the first and second years following the incident. Requirements vary depending on whether the deceased is survived by a spouse, a spouse and children, children and no spouse, or none of these.

Like other personal injury cases, state law requires that wrongful death claims be filed within the standard deadline of two years from the date of the negligent or willful act that caused injury. For this reason, it is a good idea to consult with a lawyer as soon as grieving allows.
