How will my child’s life be valued in a Madison wrongful death case?

This is an extremely painful topic for Wisconsin parents who have lost a child in an accident. Quite honestly, there is no way that the law can adequately compensate you for your loss. It is, unfortunately, impossible to undo the tragedy and there is no amount of money or anything else that will ever be a suitable substitute for your child.

Yet, Wisconsin law attempts to make things as right as possible by providing parents with the opportunity to seek damages if their child was killed by the negligent or intentional acts of other people. The law may allow you to recover damages for your child’s pain and suffering from the accident until the time of death, for any medical bills incurred as a result of the accident, for funeral expenses, and for other damages. Additionally, the law may allow you to recover for your emotional loss in a Wisconsin wrongful death lawsuit.

It is important to know that the economic value the law puts on your child’s life is not what you, or your Madison wrongful death attorney, believe your child’s life to be worth. Seeking compensation pursuant to Wisconsin law does not minimize the value of your child’s life which will continue to be treasured by you, your family, your friends, and all who have been touched by your son or daughter.
