Types of Compensation in a Rhode Island Wrongful Death Claim
A wrongful death claim may be filed in any instance where an individual or company was responsible for the loss of life of another person. These claims may stem from acts of negligence, where someone failed to uphold their duty to reasonably provide for another’s safety. Examples may include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, workplace injuries, construction site accidents, and medical malpractice. Our Warwick wrongful death lawyer can help with any of these cases.
In Rhode Island, the family may be able to pursue financial compensation for immediate and long-term losses:
- Loss of earnings
- Loss of future earnings, including pensions, bonuses or other benefits
- Medical expenses, including hospitalization, medical procedures, medication and more
- Property damage, such as vehicle damage, damage to personal property and more
- Emotional trauma
Truly, no amount of money could make up for the loss of a loved one. It can, however, alleviate the financial burden such a loss can cause, helping the family focus on remembering their loved one rather than dealing with the stress of mounting bills and lost earnings.
