Many family members will struggle both emotionally and financially after the loss of a loved one. While no amount of money can replace the person you have lost, there are many types of losses that can be recovered through a wrongful death claim. Damages in these cases not only make up for economic losses, but can compensate the surviving family members for personal losses as well.
Here are a few losses that may be covered in a Texas wrongful death case:
- Lost earning capacity – The amount that the deceased would have contributed to the family if he or she had worked until retirement age.
- Lost inheritance – The amount of assets that the deceased could have amassed and left to surviving family members if he or she had not passed away.
- Lost spousal support – This includes lost companionship, comfort, love, and society.
- Lost physical and emotional support – The inability of the deceased to provide home maintenance, personal care, parental support, or advice and counsel to his or her surviving family members.
- Loss of enjoyment – In cases where a loved one suffered a violent death or a death that caused mental and emotional suffering for family members.
