Because of the extreme loss involved in a wrongful death case, Rhode Island families may be able to file for several different types of compensation, including:

Lost Income After a Wrongful Death

An expert witness is typically called upon to calculate this amount by estimating the victim’s income over the remainder of his or her lifetime.

Medical Expenses Associated with a Wrongful Death

Any hospital or other medical expenses incurred during the time between the victim’s injury and death.

Decedent’s Pain and Suffering Due to a Wrongful Death

Financial compensation for the pain and suffering experienced by the victim as a result of the injuries prior to death.

Loss of Consortium Following a Wrongful Death

This represents the emotional cost to the spouse, children or parents left behind by the victim’s death.

Wrongful death cases require experienced and skilled legal assistance. Insurance lawyers for the defendant may contend the victim shared blame for his or her injuries, which can reduce damages. They will try to minimize their payout by offering low settlement amounts. Our skilled, aggressive and dedicated legal team won’t allow that to happen.
