Medical Malpractice—What is the Average Wrongful Death Settlement

There is no pain like losing someone you love. That’s the simple truth of the matter. It’s also true that while losing a loved one can be difficult at any time, it can be even more painful when that loss is caused by an accident that could—and should—have been prevented. If you are a victim of such a tragic loss, you should know that you may be entitled to compensation. 

At Morgan and Morgan, we have years of experience successfully bringing wrongful death claims for clients who have lost their loved ones due to negligence. We are proud of our reputation for fighting each step of the way for our clients to receive the maximum recovery possible for their claims. Often, we are asked, “What is the average wrongful death settlement?” It is, after all, an understandable and important question to ask. 

As with any legal matter, the answer will vary based upon the circumstances of each case. Just as every lost loved one is unique and different, so too are the facts of the claim and the legal issues that might arise. Generally, a settlement will take into account various factors, including:

  • Medical expenses of the victim;
  • Funeral and burial expenses;
  • Financial support that the deceased would have provided;
  • The age and health of the deceased person and how long they likely would have lived;
  • The parties at fault in the case;
  • The circumstances of the accident;
  • Any dependents that the deceased left behind;

Some cases may settle for tens of millions of dollars, while others may settle for under one million. Much of it will depend upon the facts of the case—but much of it will also depend upon the legal team that you choose to fight for you.
