It's Important Not to Delay
It can be difficult and may feel inappropriate or disrespectful to concern yourself with financial matters during this time of mourning, but there are statutes of limitations to consider. And your lawyer and legal team will handle most of your case. All you need to do is meet with them, explain the facts of your case, hand over any relevant documentation, and let them lead the way.

A lawyer experienced in wrongful death suits can help provide you peace of mind. The sooner you start the process, the sooner you'll feel financially secure once again.
Understanding the Financial Aspect
In personal injury torts, including wrongful death lawsuits, lawyers take cases on a contingency basis: There is no charge to the client unless and until the lawyer succeeds in getting you the compensation you deserve—either by successfully negotiating a settlement out of court or by going to court and winning at trial.
The law firm will also track court costs, filing fees, payments due to investigators and expert witnesses, and essentially every other outlay of money associated with your case and deduct them from your final settlement amount.

What You Deserve After a Wrongful Death
When your loved one's untimely death can be traced back to another party's negligence or wrongdoing, you deserve compensation. You are entitled to monetary damages to compensate you for:
- Outstanding medical bills incurred during the treatment of an illness or injury
- Costs associated with the funeral, memorial service, and interment
- Lost wages and earning capacity
- Loss of household services
- Lost future benefits
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of consortium
- Grief, pain, and suffering
The amount of total compensation wrongful death plaintiffs are entitled to varies widely, depending on many factors concerning the nature of the negligence, circumstances of the death, and details about the deceased such as age and future earning potential.
Many people wonder how much money they can obtain if someone they love was wrongly killed. That is not an easy question to answer due to several factors. One of the ways to obtain money from the death of your loved one is to file and win a wrongful death lawsuit. You are probably wondering how much money is at stake. Proving certain costs, such as funeral expenses and medical bills can be easily established through the submission of relevant receipts and bank account statements, it can be much more difficult to demonstrate loss of future income. To determine how much the victim would have been able to contribute financially if he or she had not passed away requires an analysis of a variety of factors, including the deceased person's:
- The age of person who passed away
- If the person who passed away was in good health
- Earning Capacity
- The life expectancy of the person who passed away
- The circumstances at the time of death
- Other factors
