Children are the ray of hope, our future and source of joy to all of us. They are the most precious to everyone thus if they become part of an unfortunate accident, nothing will be more devastating for the family. It is not possible to quantify the death of anyone, let alone children. You cannot count in numbers what the child meant to you.
The wrongful death of a child or children is the greatest loss and none can heal the void their death leaves. It is not possible for many parents and also other family members to emotionally recover from the loss. Maybe this is the reason the loss of a child is one of the most under-compensated areas of law for the members of the family.
People delve into emotions and never look at the deserving compensation part. The loss is too big to care about the finances anymore. But the culprit needs to be brought before the court to make sure they never repeat the same with others.
When asked to wrongful death lawyers about their cases they tell us they evaluate the loss of the body part(s), injuries, economic loss, the loss of earnings and all the emotional and mental trauma caused by the accident when working on the case.
But when it comes to evaluating the wrongful death of a child it gets difficult as which parent will be able to evaluate and tell how much the child meant to them and how will the lawyer evaluate the suffering and pain of the parents. The compensation for the loss of care, guidance and companionship will always remain unsatisfactory to the grieving, mom and dad and other family members.
Thus the lawyers find ways within the boundaries of the law to expand on damages and compensation so that they can help parents and the family members to move on. They evaluate the income loss, housekeeping services, caregiving services, occupational therapy services, psychological services, rehabilitation and other health services, guardianship application fees, management fees for lump sum pecuniary settlements and many such points for the parents in a wrongful death of child case.
