The determination as to who is entitled to recover for wrongful death should be made as soon as practicable.
What types of damages are recoverable for wrongful death?
The Idaho wrongful death statute says that a person entitled to bring a wrongful death claim may recover damages that under all of the circumstances of the case may be just. That statement is vague so court opinions have interpreted what that phrase means. Call us now to discuss your wrongful death claim and we can give you more information about the damages you are entitled to recover.
How much is my wrongful death case worth?
The value of a wrongful death claim depends on the nature of the relationship between the person bringing the claim and the decedent. Further, the extent of insurance coverage and the number of heirs will impact a person’s recovery.
