Compensation for Wrongful Death Claims
Wrongful death lawsuits provide a way for the families or loved ones of individuals who have died as a result of another person’s negligence to sue for damages. Prior to the existence of wrongful death lawsuits, there was no way to try negligent individuals who contributed to the death of another in a civil court because the injured party was not there to file a lawsuit for personal damages.
There are a number of serious damages that families and loved ones can incur after a death caused by negligence. If you have a loved one or family member who was killed due to the actions of another party and wish to know more about your options regarding wrongful death lawsuits, contact an experienced Iowa wrongful death lawyer from LaMarca Law Group, P.C. by calling 877-327-2600.
Wrongful Death Damages
Damages that can be sought in wrongful death lawsuits vary from state to state but typically include:
- Hospital expenses and other care expenses for the victim
- Mental anguish and sorrow due to loss of companionship
- Compensation for loss of income brought in by the victim
- Loss of services, protection, care of assistance which the victim provided to beneficiaries
- Loss of victim’s future earnings
- Loss of medical benefits
- Loss of inheritance
- Pain and suffering

Although nothing can make up for the loss of a loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit may help make it easier to deal with the financial implications of the loss.
