A catastrophic accident can have enduring and tragic consequences for innocent victims. In the worst cases, they can even be fatal. When they are, surviving family members are forced to confront overwhelming grief, shock and anxiety about the future. Sadly, instead of being able to take the necessary time to grieve and console one another, victims’ families are often met with a long line of practical, financial, and legal challenges.

Wrongful Death Compensation
It is impossible to find true compensation for the loss of a family member. However, a successful wrongful death claim can at least ease some of the complications your family is facing during this difficult time. Our wrongful death attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga can help you pursue repayment for losses such as:
- The deceased person’s financial contributions to the household
- The deceased person’s companionship, guidance and support
- The deceased person’s benefits (pension, health insurance, etc.)
- Any medical expenses related to the deceased person’s injuries
- Funeral and burial costs
Many jurisdictions authorize surviving family members to be compensated in a wrongful death lawsuit for financial as well as non-financial losses. This may include loss of financial support, love, care, comfort, guidance, supervision, home assistance and general society. In wrongful death lawsuits, many jurisdictions allow financial compensation for surviving family members for their personal grief and suffering. Eligibility and damages available for bringing a lawsuit vary from state to state.
