Wrongful death costs after drunk driving car accidents

Drunk driving accidents can be very costly in terms of the property that you lose or the damage to your property; even if you walk away from the accident, it costs money to fix your car, replace it and to replace items inside the car -- such as a laptop computer -- that may have been damaged in the crash. However, these well-known costs may only be a fraction of the cost of the crash if a loved one passes away.

When this happens, the first thing to think about is the emotional toll that this takes on you and your family. You could suffer from anxiety, depression and other such ailments. These do not cost you money, but they definitely cost you your health and happiness, and you may be able to seek compensation for them.

On top of that, there is the cost of medical assistance in trying to save a person's life. This could include the ride to the hospital, the treatment given out in the emergency room and any surgeries done to attempt to save them. Though these efforts may not be successful, all of that treatment is still costly.

Finally, you have additional financial considerations after the person's passing. You may need to buy him or her a burial plot, put together a funeral, pay for the burial itself, buy him or her a new suit and much more. Funerals tend to get more expensive every year, though you may not realize it until you put one together.
