AZ Wrongful Death Law
When a person dies because of the wrongful act or negligence of another person or entity, the surviving family losses companionship, financial providers, or affection. Also, the burden of expenses and mental anguish, resulting from a wrongful death may fall upon close relatives.
Surviving spouses, parents, and children, under Arizona Law, may recover compensation for loss or damage including:
- Income and services that have been lost and potential future earnings and services
- Pain, suffering, grief, sorrow, stress, and anguish already experienced and may be experienced in the future
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of companionship, love, affection, protection, guidance, and protection since the time of death and in the future
- Consortium loss for the surviving spouse
- Medical expenses for injuries resulting in death
In some cases, family is able to recover punitive damages, especially if the actions of the negligent person or entity were especially extreme. This would be damages rewarded to punish the negligent party and to discourage future acts of the kind.
