Wrongful Death Settlements

In life, there are many difficult and painful moments. That’s simply part of being human. It’s also true that there is no pain deeper or more lasting than the pain that comes with unexpectedly losing someone you love. 

When you’ve experienced this kind of pain, you know that there is nothing that can truly take that pain away. While it is impossible to replace your loved one, you should know that if your loved one died as a result of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

At Morgan & Morgan, we take pride in our hard-earned reputation as attorneys who provide our wrongful death clients with the blend of compassionate yet aggressive representation that they need, and who fight for our clients every step of the way. We understand the complex law that applies to wrongful death claims, and we know the best legal strategies to pursue on your behalf.

What is the Average Settlement?

One question that our clients often ask is, "What is the average settlement for a wrongful death claim?” Asking this question is understandable. After all, you have to decide if you are going to pursue a legal claim.

In the case of a wrongful death claim, the answer can ultimately depend on a variety of factors, and every case will be slightly different, depending upon the circumstances involved. Some of the factors that will affect settlement amounts include:

  • The age and health of the deceased;
  • The circumstances of the accident that caused your loved one’s death;
  • Medical expenses incurred by your lost loved one;
  • Funeral expenses;
  • The financial support your loved one would likely have provided had they lived;
  • Support around the home that the deceased would have provided had they lived;
  • The cost of caring for any dependents of the deceased;
  • And, most importantly, the knowledge and experience of the team of wrongful death attorneys that you choose to hire. 

All of these factors will have an impact on your case, but the last factor is certainly worth careful consideration. Significant damages are often available in wrongful death claims, but to increase your chances of recovering the maximum amount of compensation available, you will need a legal team that knows and understands the law. 

That's why you need Morgan & Morgan on your side. 

Morgan & Morgan Is Here for You

Morgan and Morgan is truly the best law firm! PERIOD! You could consider yourself blessed when they take your case. Immediately, you can breathe. Anxiety goes from a 10 to 0! I needed them 3 TIMES! I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court! I got settlements for all 3 lawsuits. Never stepped a foot into a courtroom. Thank you so much Morgan & Morgan!
