How does the court determine the amount of compensation in a wrongful death case?
In the event of a wrongful death, no amount of money can bring back a loved one, but compensation can help lessen the financial burden. The court takes a number of economic and non-economic factors into account when determining the amount of compensation. WRONGFUL DEATH ECONOMIC LOSS FACTORS :- From an economic stand point, the court considers funeral and medical expenses, as well as the amount of money the deceased would have contributed had they lived a normal life span. This in and of itself is a very complex equation in which the court examines how financially dependent the survivors were on the deceased including the age and needs of the deceased’s children.
