Aggressive, Compassionate Representation in Wrongful Death Cases

When an accidental death turns out to be a preventable one, it's another blow to the grieving survivors. A wrongful death lawsuit is part justice and part compensation. It holds the wrongdoers accountable for the negligence, and it provides monetary damages to replace the economic contributions of the loved one who was killed.

About Wrongful Death Claims in Tennessee

Damages are generally limited to pecuniary value — funeral expenses, medical bills and the lost future earnings of the deceased based on life expectancy. If a child was killed, projected earnings might be based on the parents' education or income.

Damages can include (a) conscious pain and suffering of the person prior to death and (b) punitive damages if the death was caused by fraudulent, reckless, intentional or malicious acts. Survivors can also seek to recover for the emotional distress and loss of companionship or love.
