The Arizona Wrongful Death Act
According to Arizona law, a family has grounds for a wrongful death suit if the deceased would have grounds for an injury suit had the accident had not been fatal. Compensation can be awarded to the deceased’s spouse, children and parents.
The damages awarded will depend on a family member’s individual circumstances. Possible damages include:
- Loss of companionship and care
- Loss of financial support
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical expenses related to the deceased’s injury
- Surviving family’s pain and suffering
- Loss of the deceased’s income and benefits (salary, insurance & pension)
The laws governing who can receive what kinds of compensation are very complex. If you are considering civil action, speak with our experienced Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff wrongful death attorneys.
