Wrongful Death: What is a Life Worth?

by Staff Blogger | December 28th, 2016

What is a life worth? The humanitarian answer is it’s priceless. There’s simply no amount of money that can compensate for the loss of a life. However, every year wrongful death lawsuits are settled in and out of courtrooms for a specific amount. That amount can vary from a several thousand to millions of dollars. But no matter the amount, one thing is true for each case—it’s never enough.

Given the choice between a wrongful death settlement and your loved one back in your arms, you’d choose your loved one every day of the week. Unfortunately, they’re gone forever due to someone else’s negligence. And the only legal course of action you might have is through a wrongful death lawsuit.

At Ponce Law, we help the surviving families of wrongful death victims get that justice by demonstrating what your loved one meant to your family and your community. It’s a way of honoring their memory by ensuring that everyone involved knows the character and potential your loved one possessed, and what the world lost when his/her life was tragically cut short.

If you’ve lost a loved one to someone else’s carelessness, we want to help. Our experienced Nashville wrongful death attorneys will handle your case with the respect and dignity your loved one deserves, so that your family can start the long process of healing.
