In Massachusetts, a wrongful death claim may arise out of a number of circumstances, including:

  • Medical malpractice
  • Dental malpractice
  • Pharmaceutical error
  • Fatal car accidents
  • Fatal truck accidents
  • Fatal airplane accidents
  • Death in childbirth
  • Infant death
  • Alcohol-related accidents
  • Death during a supervised activity, such as a field trip or sports tournament

Damages in a Wrongful Death Case

Several factors are taken into consideration when courts determine financial damages in wrongful death cases, including loss of support, loss of services, loss of consortium and loss of potential inheritance.

If the deceased was the primary breadwinner in a family with young children, the financial impact on the family could be significant. If the deceased was an infant, young child or an elderly member of a family, the financial impact would be measured in different terms.

The need for financial compensation is not the only factor that motivates people to bring wrongful death claims. Often, when malpractice is involved, the victims of malpractice feel a responsibility to make sure it does not happen to anyone else.
