Death cases differ from a typical personal injury accident case in that in a typical accident case, the only person that makes the recovery is the person that's injured. In a death case there are two people or two classes of people that make a recovery. One is the recovery for the person that died and that is what we call a survivor claim. That would include their conscious pain and suffering, if any. It would include their final medical expenses, if any, and would include their funeral expenses. In addition to that, the loved ones have a claim. Those would include any financial support that the decedent provided to the loved ones. Would also include loss of love, affection, counsel, advice. It could include grief and other emotional damages. It's best to see an attorney in any kind of claim of this nature because it is complicated, and these are what we call wrongful death claims and they vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
