Recoverable Wrongful Death Damages
The laws that govern wrongful death claims vary from state to state. Arkansas separates wrongful death claims into two sub-categories: the estate and the family claim. The estate claim is a claim by the estate of the deceased person. It seeks compensation for losses the deceased person suffered as a result of his or her death. Funeral and burial costs, medical bills for treatment of the deceased, pain and suffering the deceased endured before death, and the loss of the value of the deceased person’s remaining life – including wages likely earned can be paid in an estate claim.
The family claim is a claim by the surviving family members of the deceased. A family claim can seek compensation for losses the family members suffered as a result of losing their family member. Loss of the financial support of the deceased, loss of household services, and loss of care, comfort, and guidance can all be paid in a family claim.
