What benefits are available in a wrongful death claim?
What can be recovered in a wrongful death action in Wyoming? The answer to that is it’s very limited what can be recovered in a wrongful death case, but there is loss of the care, comfort and society that the individual brought to the lives of his or her family members, so you need to take that into account.
What is care? What is comfort? What is society? Care is what a parent gives to a child. Care is what the child gives back to the parent. Comfort is the comfort that you have knowing that you have a child; the comfort that the child has knowing that he or she has a parent that’s caring for him or her. The long-term benefit of that relationship for education, for medical care, for the comfort of that child and the society of the child, of course, is what does that child bring to you. Every day you have a meal with that child, every day you take the child to school – those kinds of things are important in every wrongful death case and in human contact we have with each other. Often, we call this grief, and we have grief counselors that take us through the process of grief, how people deal with that, and the loss of the care, comfort and society of their loved one. All of that needs to be taken into account in wrongful death cases. It gets kind of complicated, but it has to be done by spending a lot of time.
What we like to do is a family tree. Where did this individual fit into the family tree? Where in the biography of the family did this individual fit? What happens is we have a blank spot in the family tree, and that blank spot is always empty, and the family circle is broken. All of that needs to be taken into account in a wrongful death case. It’s important to paint that entire picture. It takes an attorney that has the ability to empathize with other individuals, and it takes a unique person that fully understands the total loss to the family. Keep that in mind. That’s what we consider in a wrongful death case. Give us a call if you have questions.
