How pecuniary loss is determined in a wrongful death lawsuit

When someone files a wrongful death lawsuit over the death of a family member, the damages awarded by the court are based on certain criteria. These criteria include loss of support that the survivors received from the deceased family member, loss of prospective inheritance and expenses incurred for medical treatment prior to death, as well as the costs associated with conducting a burial. In the words of the court of law, the compensation awarded for these losses are known as pecuniary damages.

In order to determine the pecuniary losses, courts consider several factors, such as the victim's age, the victim's character and condition, earning capacity (both present and future), health and intelligence and also the financial circumstances of the survivors who have filed the wrongful death claim. Although the determination process may seem straightforward, the fact is that measuring the extent of damages in financial terms is often a challenging task, both for the plaintiffs and for the juries.
