It is grievous to lose a beloved parent or grandparent — especially in a negligent wrongful death tragedy. The wrongful death of an elderly person can cause emotional and financial hardship. The spouse or children will lose companionship and possibly monetary contributions.
The survivors may have been dependent on the pension of the deceased. If survivorship benefits were not in place, a significant amount of money could have been lost due to the death of the loved one.
Courts will frequently take this into account when calculating damages in Wrongful Death Cases. Other factors taken into consideration in determining damages are:
- loss of companionship
- loss of guidance
- loss of affection
- the age of the decedent
- whether the decedent experienced pain and suffering
