What can I sue for in a case involving wrongful death?

The most common types of recoverable damages in a wrongful death case can include loss of financial support, as well as loss of consortium.  “Consortium” includes the love, society and companionship of the deceased.

You can also sue for the actual injuries sustained by the deceased in the accident including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and mental aguish.  This is called a “survival claim.”
