Can a wrongful death lawsuit be filed even if the loved one didn’t have a job?
Every life has value. So when you look at damages that are recoverable under a wrongful death statute there, there are damages for the pain and suffering or the grief that loved ones have had to endure from the loss of this person. And, of course if that person suffered pain before his or her death, you can recover as part of damages that pre-death pain and suffering. So, the fact that you don’t have a wage history for this loved one doesn’t mean that there cannot be an action filed for that person’s death. So, even if you’ve lost a loved one who was working at the time of their passing call Bailey Javins & Carter. We’d like to have a look at that wrongful death case.
