Arizona Wrongful Death Claim
Under Arizona’s wrongful death statute, family members of someone killed in a car, motorcycle, pedestrian, bicycle, truck, or other motor vehicle accident may be able to obtain compensation from the person or persons responsible.
Arizona statutes that deal specifically with claims allowing compensation for wrongful death identify who can bring the claim, who can recover compensation, and what damages are recoverable. This statutory claim may be brought by a surviving family member such as spouse, child, or parent of a decedent to compensate them for the losses they sustained as the result of the wrongful death of their family member. The “wrongful” act that resulted in a death may have been intentional, reckless or negligent, as long as it is of the character that would have permitted the decedent to maintain an action for injuries had death not resulted.
Among the areas of recovery under Arizona’s wrongful death laws are:
- Loss of earnings by the deceased
- Loss of love and affection
- Loss of guidance
- Loss of companionship
A wrongful death claim allows compensation for the injuries and losses that the surviving family has suffered due to the victim’s death, including the victim’s lost future earnings and benefits. Some of the factors involved in calculating these damages include how dependent the family member was on the deceased, what relationship the family member had with the deceased, the anticipated lifespan of the deceased, and the anticipated earnings or other benefits of the deceased.
