What types of financial compensation can be recovered in wrongful death cases?

In a wrongful deal case, the plaintiffs are suing for the injuries they have incurred because of the loss of their loved one. The plaintiffs can sue for their own mental anguish, the way it’s affected their lives. They can sue for loss of companionship that they had with the decedent. They can also sue for any earnings that the deceased person contributed to them when he or she was alive. There’s also various other types of things that a plaintiff can recover. For example, you can recover funeral expenses. It depends on the situation, but those are the general categories of damages that you can recover.
