How much is a wrongful death claim worth?

There is no set formula for determining the value of a wrongful death claim. The amount of compensation you may be entitled to will depend on a variety of factors, including the circumstances surrounding your loved one's death, the types and extent of damages you have incurred as a result, and whether there was any available insurance or other resources to cover your losses. However, generally speaking, the more serious or damaging the incident that led to your loved one's death was, and the greater the losses you have incurred as a result, the higher your settlement award is likely to be.
