If you believe the loss of a loved one is due to negligence, you are entitled to have your questions answered and the solace of helping prevent a future tragedy for another family. In a free consultation, attorney Ann Sheeley will review your case and explain how we can help you.

What Does Wrongful Death Compensation Include?

In Rhode Island, wrongful death compensation can include:

  • Medical costs prior to death

  • Pain and suffering of the deceased prior to death

  • Income the deceased would have earned had he or she lived

  • Loss of consortium of a spouse

  • Loss of society and companionship of a parent or child (whether a minor or adult over 18 years of age)

  • Funeral and burial costs


Ann Sheeley will carefully review these and other factors in your case and calculate the full value of your financial losses for inclusion in your claim. In this effort, she will be assisted by one or more experts, such as an economist and actuarial specialist. Ann Sheeley will also examine the effect that the loss of your loved one has had on your family. She will learn about the role he or she played in your family’s life and those special moments you shared. Attorney Sheeley will work diligently at all stages of the legal process, seeking full compensation for you.
