Valuing A Wrongful Death Claim

Posted by Alvin Wolff | Dec 09, 2010 | 0 Comments

I'm set for trial on a case in Pike County in January 2011.  My client died at the age of 73.  She was rehabiltating 4 fractures suffered in a bad car wreck, was quite immobile,  but lived with her husband of 55 years and celebrated every holiday with her 3 grown children and their famillies.  She had diabetes and was several years free of colon cancer. She lived a full life until she was in the car crash.  Because of her fractures, she was on blood thinners (lovenox) to prevent blood clots.  While home she ran out of her lovenox and the doctor said she did not need it anymore because he mistakingly thought that she was on another blood thinner, coumadin.  She was not on coumadin.  She died from a blood clot 3 days later.

What's the case worth?   Forgetting about caps.  This case is about the loss of a wife and mother.  All responses appreciated but please, no wisecracks.  This is serious stuff.
