Wrongful death is a tort claim that occurs as a result of negligent conduct by a defendant. Most of the recoverable damages in a wrongful death suit are directed toward the survivors of the victim. Some of the recoverable economic damages include medical and funeral expenses, loss of future earnings, loss of benefits caused by the victim’s death and punitive damages. Recoverable non-economic damages include mental anguish of survivors and loss of care or companionship to survivors.
