It is always painful to lose a child, spouse, or other family member. That pain is even worse when the loss is caused by someone’s negligence. In those situations, it is normal to feel upset, angry, and confused. Let Gosdis Law help. We have significant experience pursuing justice in wrongful death cases.

Although no amount of money can replace a family member, monetary awards are the only tool the courts possess to compensate victims. Money awards can help ease the financial burdens resulting from the wrongful death of a loved one. Money awards also punish wrongdoers for dangerous or otherwise negligence conduct. As such, wrongful death heirs (including spouses, children, parents and others) have the right to bring claims for the following economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages include:

  • the loss of the decedent’s financial support to the heir(s)
  • the loss of gifts or other benefits the heir(s) would have received from the decedent
  • the loss of household services the decedent would have provided to the heir(s)
  • funeral expenses
  • the decedent’s past medical expenses

Non-economic damages include :

  • the loss of love, affection, care; and support
  • the loss of sexual relations

If you have lost a loved one to negligence, contact a Utah wrongful death lawyer immediately to protect your rights. Time matters. Insurance companies know you are in a vulnerable position and often seek to take advantage of that fact. They may attempt to interview you to secure admissions helpful to their case or they may persuade you accept a quick, lowball settlement offer before you are able to retain an attorney. An experienced Utah personal injury attorney will protect you against these insurance company tactics, among many others, and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
