Minnesota Wrongful Death Damages

Determination of Wrongful Death Damages

There are many factors that have to be considered when valuing a wrongful death claim. The decedent’s life will be evaluated in regard to their:

  • contributions in the past
  • life expectancy at the time of wrongful death
  • health, age, habits, talents, and success
  • occupation
  • past earnings
  • future earning capacity and prospects of advancement

In addition to considering the lost contributions of the decedent, other areas that will be examined are:

  • personal living expenses of spouse and children
  • legal obligation to support spouse and next of kin, including likelihood the decedent would have fulfilled that obligation
  • all medical expenses incurred as a result of the injuries causing death
  • all reasonable expenses incurred for funeral and burial
  • the probability that the decedent would pay off debts of spouse or next of kin
  • the counsel, guidance, and aid decedent would have given
  • the advice, comfort, assistance, and protection the decedent would have given
