Types of Damages That Our Wrongful Death Attorneys Will Fight For
In a Milwaukee wrongful death claim, the spouse, children, descendants, parents, grandparents, and siblings, or if none survive the deceased, the individuals to whom the estate would pass under the laws of intestate (without a will) succession, are entitled to claim the same personal injury damages that could have been claimed had the deceased lived, according to the Wisconsin Legislature. The statute states that the court or jury may award fair and equitable damages for the following:
- Medical, hospital, funeral and burial expenses;
- Pain and suffering undergone by the deceased before death;
- Loss of financial support from the deceased by the family; and
- Loss of the society and companionship of the deceased.
