After You Have Lost Your Loved One
After the initial shock has subsided from losing your loved one, a harsh reality can set in. Your loved one provided more than companionship and love, they also contributed financially to the household. This loss of income can cause significant financial hardships on the remaining family members, adding more misery to an already sad time.
It is because of these unforeseen financial hardships that Nevada law allows surviving family members to seek compensation when a loved one is lost in an accidental death. It is understandable that compensation can never replace what has been lost, but it can help the family endure during these trying times.
Types Of Compensation
- Economic Losses. This includes any medical expenses that are related to the accident that caused the death, funeral and burial expenses, and possibly administrative costs for the estate. Additionally, compensation for lost wages and future earnings, as well as other anticipated monetary support, such as paying for health insurance and retirement savings.
- Non-Economic Losses. This will include compensation for loss of companionship, consortium, society and comfort. It will try to award for the emotional stress felt by the remaining family members, although this is impossible to place a monetary value on because everyone would prefer to have their loved one back, and pain and suffering endured by the now deceased.
- Punitive Damages. Punitive damages are a type of damage inflicted upon a responsible party as a form of punishment. If the negligent act that caused the accidental death is considered a “gross act of negligence,” then these damages may be awarded in addition to any other compensation. This type of compensation does not apply to every case.
