What can a family recover on behalf ofa loved one who died in a construction site accident?

Our Indianapolis construction accident lawyer highlights that in wrongful death claims, the damages are determined by the law in each state or country.  Some jurisdictions will limit the recovery to the economic loss caused by the death.  Others will allow additional damages for lost love and affection of the surviving spouse or dependent children, as well as for the conscious pain and suffering of the worker from the time of the accident until the death.  Funeral and burial expenses are recoverable, as well as any medical or hospital expenses.  Costs of administering the estate are usually recoverable as well.
