Seeking Wrongful Death Damages in Colorado

Your wrongful death attorney will seek the damages you deserve through determining specific details about the deceased and your family’s loss. While all cases differ and there is no set amount of damages, the way damages are determined is based on the same general principles.

1: How much the deceased would have earned had they been able to continue working

2: The benefits and compensation you have lost due to inability to work since your loss

3: The emotional and mental strain you and your family have undergone due to the loss of your loved one (comfort, friendship, love, affection, etc.)

4: Medical, funeral, and burial expenses.

5: Any property damage may be taken into account.

6: In extreme cases of negligence, you and your family may be able to receive punitive damages. These are damages that are meant to punish the at-fault party and work to prevent this type of negligence from recurring.

Experts may be needed to help define these amounts based on certain criteria of the deceased, such as age, health, earning capacity, and financial circumstances.
