Types Of Recovery

In a wrongful death action, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Lost earnings and financial support
  • Loss of companionship/consortium
  • Medical and funeral expenses related to the loss

Putting a dollar amount on these losses can be challenging. Our lawyers understand how to build well-supported claims.

What About Emotional Distress?

There’s no doubt that the untimely loss of a loved one brings unimaginable grief on the survivors. No amount of monetary damages can truly quantify that loss.

However, depending on the jurisdiction, you may be able to pursue financial recovery for emotional distress related to the loss. Pennsylvania allows survivors to recover compensation for grief and emotional suffering. In cases involving particularly egregious or reckless conduct, additional punitive damages may also be available.

In New Jersey, you may have a separate claim for negligent or intentional infliction of emotional distress, both of which may allow you to obtain full compensation for all the losses you have suffered — including the emotional harm.
