Wrongful Death

If you are suffering the shock and grief of having lost a family member in a fatal accident, we understand that recovering monetary compensation is not something you have not likely thought much about. However, it can be critical to talk to an experienced attorneyas soon as possible after the accident and definitely before discussing any settlement with an insurance company.

Recoverable Damages After a Wrongful Death Can Be Very Significant

After any accident caused by someone else's negligence, an insurance company and its' representatives will likely focus on settling the claim for as little as possible. In a wrongful death case — just as in a very serious personal injury case — circumstances and insurance coverage may justify a pay out in the millions of dollars.

Under Oregon law, when liability can be established for a wrongful death in a car accident, motorcycle or trucking accident, or other catastrophic event, it may be possible for a spouse or other family members to recover money for:

  • Funeral and burial expenses, as well as medical costs if treatment was attempted in the effort to save your loved one
  • The loss of all income the deceased may reasonably have been expected to earn and contribute to your household over a lifetime
  • Other "compensatory" damages for very real considerations such as the loss of companionship
