One of the most difficult cases to deal with in a court of law is the Wrongful Death case.

What is the Compensation for in a Wrongful Death Claim?
You have a lot of compensation to be given. You lost someone who supported you, possibly your family and your children and was there to comfort you for life. Now theyâ€™re gone. Here is just a sample of what a Wrongful Death claim may encompass.
Financial Support â€“ When you have lost current and future financial support as a spouse or child, we will do everything possible to get the maximum amount of compensation.
Medical Expenses â€“ Just because they are gone, doesnâ€™t mean the medical expenses that were accrued while trying to keep them alive are payed. They owe you these payments.
Pain & Suffering â€“ The pain and suffering of both the victim and family members is often taken into consideration when making this determination.
Spouse & Children Damages â€“ The spouse and children not only lost financial support, but the companionship that they would have had throughout their entire life. No money can substitute this, but restitution must be paid.

Intoxication â€“ Unfortunately, many people drink heavily on boats and endanger all the fellow sailors around them. Many boating accidents can be traced back to someone being negligent and steering the ship while intoxicated.
Carelessness / Lack of Attention â€“ There are many distractions when steering a boat just like driving a car. However, it is your responsibility as the captain of the vessel to steer the ship in the safest manner for your passengers and the other boaters.
Improper Handling / Procedure â€“ If the captain of the ship is navigating in a very bad manner, then accidents may occur. Speeding to high degrees can lead to passengers being projected off of the ship. Not to tell if there was a collision at such a high speed.
Weather â€“ Occasionally, youâ€™ll run into dangerous weather that causes rough waves and torrent winds. These situations are sometimes unpredictable and can have you stranded in very dangerous areas.
