After a loved one's wrongful death, obtaining a lawyer for legal action may not be your highest priority, but it is important to retain one. A death that results from another person’s carelessness, negligence, or recklessness may be considered to be a “wrongful death” that warrants financial compensation for the surviving family members.

The children of the deceased;
The parents of the deceased; and

The Family Compensation Act limits the compensatory damages to:

Loss of love, guidance and affection (for children of the deceased only);
The loss of services that would otherwise have been rendered by the deceased to the remaining family members;
The loss of financial support to the remaining family members as a result of the death;
Limited out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of a death (funeral and related expenses);
