Presenting Your Loss
After suffering the loss of your spouse, it is important that you save all items of sentimental value related to your loved one. These items include:
- Family photos
- Family videos
- Marriage certificate
- Their wedding ring
- Birthday cards
These are the types of items that our attorneys use to help demonstrate to the insurance company and, if necessary, the jury the tremendous loss that you and your family have suffered.
Wrongful death cases have different factors if the death of a loved one is a spouse. When the court determines compensation, age and life expectancy are usually the decisive factors. They will also determine future earnings for an adult who has had consistent employment. Additionally, the court will consider the impact of the loss of income on you and your family.
