Wrongful Death Of A Loved One Brings Many Losses

When you lose a loved one, economic loss is only part of the conversation. You also lose all of the ways that person was involved in your life and your family's future. All of the roles that person fulfilled and contributions he or she might have made are gone, such as:

  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of future life benefits
  • Losing the loved one as a financial provider for the family
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of a spouse or parent

We know your loved one can never be replaced, but you can seek financial damages from negligent parties because of this unfortunate hole that was created by this life cut short.

Elder Death Should Not Be Minimized

Nursing home cases often come up because the nursing home argues that the person's life isn't worth as much as a younger person's life. In these cases, insurance companies try to minimize the value of life and play down the nursing home negligence case. They basically argue that the person is already living in a nursing home (where the family member put them). It becomes a discussion about, "How frequently did you visit the decedent?" or, "Were you there for Easter?" This is unfortunately a discussion that attorneys must have with insurers in these cases. Insurance companies treat these cases like clinical fact patterns about how important the person was to you during life.
