When someone causes the death of another person, the law makes a distinction between civil and criminal responsibility. In some cases, a death is the result of a simple negligence, and the responsible party had no intent to hurt or kill the other person. Even when the actions of that person are not criminal, a family is left without their loved one - a spouse, a child, a sister, a brother, a father, or a mother. Because of the family’s loss, they have a right to compensation.
When a family loses a loved one to a wrongful death, that family has the right to financial compensation for the money their loved one would have earned based on occupation and life expectancy.
Families are entitled to financial compensation necessary to raise children, send children to university/college, feed and cloth the family unit, make house payments, and other financial responsibilities of the deceased. Families are also entitled to emotional compensation for the loss of support and companionship. In many settlements the emotional compensation is often the largest portion.
