The Law Office of Damian Stone we will help family members cope with the issues surrounding the death of a loved one due to a fatal accident. Although pursuing a wrongful death action will not fill the void left by the untimely death of a loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit can help provide financial security for you and your children. A wrongful death lawsuit can also compensate the survivors for the lost economic contributions that they would have received from the deceased loved one.
Colorado has a Wrongful Death Statute that imposes various limitations on a damage award. A Wrongful Death lawsuit permits survivors to recover noneconomic and economic damages, plus prejudgment interest. Noneconomic damages include a survivor’s grief, loss of companionship, impairment of quality of life, inconvenience, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Survivors can also recover economic damages known as “net pecuniary loss.” Net pecuniary loss is calculated by determining the value of the contributions and the services that survivors would have received from the deceased had he/she lived to his/her natural life expectancy.
The Law Office of Damian Stone will work with you to uncover the facts surrounding the death of your loved one. In addition, we will also work to ensure that you recover the maximum amounts of damages allowable under the Wrongful Death Statute
