Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in Mississippi

The claimants in a Mississippi wrongful death case could potentially be awarded recovery for two kinds of damages: economic and non-economic.

  • Non-economic damages: Non-economic damages are intended to serve as compensation for other types of damages that are much more difficult to ascribe a value to, such as the pain and suffering of the deceased before they died, emotional torment, and loss of companionship.
  • Economic damages: Economic damages are designed to compensate the family of the victim for calculable and quantifiable damages. These damages could include medical costs incurred by the deceased before their passing, burial and funeral costs or the cost of cremation, lost earnings and other income, and damage to personal property.

The types of compensation you are awarded and what that total award amount will be will vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case. The best way to figure out the value of a wrongful death case is to ask an experienced attorney.

A wrongful death claim in Mississippi may only be brought by certain relatives of the deceased. These include: 

  • Surviving brothers and sisters
  • Surviving children and parents 
  • Surviving husbands and wives
  • A personal representative of the deceased’s estate

Most often, these claims are filed by the victim’s spouse. If the couple has any living children, any awarded compensation would be equitably split between the surviving spouse and child/children.
