Wrongful Death

Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be one of the most difficult times in your life. Some people never get over it. And most people don’t think about the fact that on a daily basis we all face the risk of falling victim to someone else’s wrongful acts. Those wrongful acts can take your loved one’s life away. And when a loved one’s life is taken away due to the fault of someone else, the loved one’s family is often left with overwhelming emotional suffering, as well as financial losses which can also be devastating.

When someone’s fault causes the wrongful death of a family’s loved one, an estate can be formed for that loved one, the victim. And the victim’s estate can sue the person who caused their death. The deceased victim’s surviving spouse, domestic partner, or children can also sue for compensation. If the deceased victim doesn’t have a spouse, partner, or child, then their living parents can sue for compensation. The compensation can help the grieving family pay expenses, cover losses, reduce stress, and move on with their lives with at least some sense of justice.
 

Compensation for Wrongful Death

In Nevada, the following compensation may be sought following a wrongful death:

  • Medical bills incurred before the victim’s death
  • Property damage
  • Reasonable funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of companionship, affection, comfort, and consortium
  • Lost future income that may have been earned if death hadn’t occurred
  • Loss of employment benefits to heirs
  • Damages for the heirs’ pain and suffering
  • Damages for the victim’s pain and suffering until death
  • Punitive damages (to punish if the wrongful conduct was incredibly bad)
