Building a Case for Full Damages

A wrongful death action seeks compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses and for the person's projected lost income. The lawsuit also provides for non-economic damages for pain and suffering of the deceased before succumbing as well as lost contributions to the family such as love, companionship, parenting and advice, known under the law as consortium.

Scott F. Lewis is an experienced trial lawyer who works to "bring the person to life" for the insurance adjuster or jurors. There are no damages for the survivors' emotional pain, per se. Through photos, videos and stories of surviving family members and friends, Mr. Lewis seeks to show how the person will be missed in tangible ways. This is especially critical to maximizing damages for the death of a young child or for a retired parent.
