Damages Recoverable in Wrongful Death Claims
A wrongful death claim can help you and your family find a sense of closure after losing a loved one to someone else’s mistakes. This benefit cannot be overlooked. However, it is also important not to lose track of the fact that the liable party owes you financial compensation for what they have done. Without a financial recovery, you could be plunged into debt due to the sudden gap in your income or medical costs related to your loved one’s injuries.
The damages that you can get through your wrongful death claim could include:
- All medical costs related to your loved one’s final injury or illness
- Burial and funeral costs, up to a “reasonable” amount
- Income your loved one would have earned in life
- Value of lost day-to-day support, like home maintenance
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of inheritance
How Much Time Do You Have to File?
New Hampshire has a three-year statute of limitations for wrongful death cases. The date begins on the day that your loved one passed away, not the day that they were fatally injured or diagnosed with a fatal illness. If you do not file your claim within the statute of limitations, then the court will not allow any future filings.
Although it is painful to begin a wrongful death claim, it is important that you explore your options before much more time passes. Grief can make it easy to lose track of the months, and the statute of limitation’s expiration date can get closer and closer without you realizing it.
