Available Compensation for Families after Wrongful Deaths

by Staff Blogger | September 18th, 2017

The death of a loved one is devastating, especially if your loved one passed away due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness. And if you relied on their paychecks to keep your family fed, clothed, and sheltered, you may be facing an uncertain future.

In addition to dealing with pressing questions about how your family will cope in the weeks, months, and years ahead, you also may have questions about what events led to the death. Who was at fault and why? Could the death have been prevented?

At Ponce Law, our Nashville wrongful death attorneys do our best to answer those questions for people like you who have lost loved ones. We also fight to help you get compensation for damages such as:

  • Medical and funeral expenses – Both hospital stays and funerals are extremely expensive, and those costs will need to be addressed immediately after your loved one’s death.
  • Lost income – You’re not just losing the paycheck your loved one would have brought home at the end of the week. You’re losing a lifetime of earnings that would have increased over time.
  • Lost companionship – It may seem impossible to quantify the loss of your loved one, but lost companionship is a major factor in many wrongful death claim settlements.

The grieving process after a loved one’s death takes time, and it’s important to honor their memory. But it’s also important to make sure that your family’s well-being is taken care of.
