What Kind of Compensation Is Permitted With a Wrongful Death Case in CT & RI?
Wrongful death compensation cannot replace a loved one. No amount of money could ever accomplish that. In calculating a settlement for a CT or RI wrongful death case to support you and your family in the future, the law relies on a few metrics:
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of life’s enjoyment, the ultimate loss
- Medical and burial expenses
- The victim’s pain and suffering before death
- Survivors’ inability to carry on activities that they did before
Typically, this compensation is paid by the insurance company. In litigation, insurance companies often make “low–ball” offers. The insurance companies try to minimize the survivors’ future needs, and instead focus on decreasing the amount of money they have to pay.
Do not let yourself be victimized again. You can only stand up to these tactics with the help of an experienced wrongful death lawyer in CT or RI. We strongly encourage anyone who lost a loved one to hire a wrongful death lawyer as soon as you can, even if it is not our personal injury firm in CT. Any delay could hurt your case.
