Recoverable Losses for a Wrongful Death Case in Frisco
Our team will review your case individually, at which time our injury attorneys can identify your recoverable losses. During this review process, we will consider any of the following damages, which may entitle you to compensation:
Lost Financial Support
Spouses and children may lose their primary financial support when their loved one passes away. Lost income may be the primary form of lost financial support, but may not be the only type.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering is centered in any wrongful death case. The psychological and emotional toll of losing a loved one is great, and may entitle you to compensation. You may also receive awards to cover treatment for pain and suffering (such as counseling and medication).
If your loved one received medical care related to their cause of death, you might receive coverage of resulting medical expenses.
Liable parties may cover the entire cost of funeral and burial services for your loved one.
Loss of Consortium
This loss category covers the non-monetary aspects of losing a loved one, such as loss of romantic partnership and parental instruction.
Certain wrongful death cases, including those involving a motor vehicle accident, may include property damage.
It is Underwood Law Office’s job to identify every loss that you have. We may pursue compensation for the losses of surviving loved ones. Losses that the deceased experienced before their passing (such as pain and suffering) are also compensable.
