Family Members May Have a Potential Claim

A legal provision called solatium allows direct family members – spouses, children, parents, sisters and brothers – to be eligible for compensation for mental anguish, bereavement, and grief associated with the death or injury of a family member.

Mental anguish, bereavement, and grief can be difficult concepts to define and quantify. Your attorney will ask about your reactions to the death or injury of your loved one along with the long-term effects on you.

You should consider how your loss has impacted your companionship, love, affection, care, protection, and guidance. The loss of or injuries to your loved one often can have lasting, devastating effects on family members who bear the pain and anguish of the loss, sometimes for years.

Your attorney will need your help in obtaining testimony and records to support a solatium claim. Evidence and statements from close friends, relatives, and medical professionals along with any associated records or correspondence will be helpful in building your case.

The court will determine whether family members qualify for solatium compensation and, if so, how to value such compensation.
