What compensation is my family entitled to? by Patricia Santucci

There are several types of damages that your family members can recover in a lawsuit arising out of your motor vehicle accident. Your family members can be compensated for the loss of care, guidance, and companionship that they might reasonably have expected to receive from you if your injury had not occurred. Family members may also claim for “pecuniary loss” or “special damages” which are actual expenses reasonably incurred by your family members for your benefit. If you are killed in the accident, there are a number of other damages which can be claimed by your family. Navigating through this sometimes cumbersome process can be difficult.
