What Damages are Available in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

The amount of recovery in a wrongful death lawsuit depends on many factors, including the facts and circumstances that caused the death of the victim. There are different categories of damages in wrongful death claims, similar to those in personal injury claims. Wrongful death lawsuits may be initiated by specific people under Arizona law, not just by anyone. The lawsuit can be filed by a surviving spouse, surviving child, parent or guardian of the decedent, or the personal representative of the estate. The order for who brings the lawsuit usually starts with the surviving spouse then continues down to the personal representative. 

Wrongful death lawsuits are the result of an unsuspecting or innocent victim being killed by the negligent, careless or intentional acts of another party or entity. To have a successful wrongful death lawsuit it must be proven that the defendant’s wrongful or negligent conduct was the cause of the victims death. At Bighorn Law of Arizona, our Mesa wrongful death lawyers have years of experience recovering compensation for families who have experienced the unnecessary tragedy of losing a loved one. We realize that many families may not be initially inclined to take legal action after losing a loved one, but it is important to remenmber that there is a time limit, or statute of limitations, to submit a claim. In Arizona that timeframe is two years. Call us at (602) 553-0000 to schedule a free consultation to review your legal options.
