Survival Claims

Wrongful death actions often involve two claims, the first of which being a survival claim. This claim covers the period of time from the injury to the death of the loved one. Survival claims seek compensation for damages, such as pain and suffering, and hospital expenses.

Wrongful Death Claims

A wrongful death claim covers the damage that has been suffered by the victim's loved ones. This type of claim will seek compensation for damages such as:

  • Loss of companionship
  • Current and future monetary losses
  • Death, burial and funeral expenses
