In Massachusetts the wrongful death law allows recovery of very specific and broad elements of damages. It’s important to know that you may have potentially punitive damages awarded to you by a court and you may also be entitled to what’s called economic damages: lost wages, loss of future earning capacity. You’re entitled to be reimbursed for funeral expenses, you’re entitled to be reimbursed for medical bills, you’re entitled to be paid for noneconomic damages, pain and suffering, consciousness pain and suffering. How long did the loved one live after the incident before they passed on? Those are all elements that a court would look at to quantify or value a case.
