Causes of Wrongful Death Claims

There are a variety of different reasons for wrongful death. Because Nevada is a modified comparative fault state, there may be issues claiming damages if the deceased person was at fault to any degree. We can help you sort this out effectively.

Some of the most common causes for wrongful death are:

What are the attainable damages?

There are two kinds of damages recoverable from a wrongful death situation. The first is damages recovered on behalf of the deceased person’s estate by his or her personal representative. These damages can cover special damages, exemplary damages, or punitive damages that the person would have recovered if he or she lived for things such as medical expenses. These damages are liable to any debts owed by the deceased person unless specifically exempted by law.

The other kind of damages recoverable from a wrongful death case are for a heir’s grief, sorrow, loss of probable support, companionship, society, comfort, and consortium. The heir can also recover damages for pain, suffering, and disfigurement of the deceased person. None of these damages are liable to debts incurred by the deceased person or his or her estate. Oronoz, Ericsson & Gaffney LLC measures both your losses and the losses of your loved one’s estate to determine the maximum payout, and we fight for this amount in court if necessary.
