Losses Associated with Wrongful Death
Whether your family subsisted on one income or two, the loss of a loved one can create a significant financial strain. When you rely on that income to make ends meet, your future can seem bleak without it. Meanwhile, you must cope with the loss of your loved one. If you had children together, your children must grow up without the love, nurturing, and guidance a two-parent family can provide.
Damages in Wrongful Death Suits
In addition to a loss of income, survivors are also responsible for any medical bills and funeral expenses. These can reach astronomical totals. If you file a wrongful death suit, however, Mr. Voorhees can fight to ensure you are compensated for these costs. In addition to covering medical and funeral expenses, you may also receive compensation for:
Loss of companionship
Loss of nurturing and guidance for your children
The lost income your spouse or partner would have provided for your family

The insurance company’s goal is to settle all claims for as little as possible—even in the case of wrongful death.
