One of the damages that a family or a person can collect in a trucking accident in the event that there’s a wrongful death case or even a personal injury case are noneconomic damages. Noneconomic damages include pain and suffering, predominantly. In a wrongful death case under Florida, the survivors are entitled to recover their pain and suffering for losing a loved one. It’s not about the value of the person who passed away, but it’s the pain and suffering of the people that are still living. Those are the damages, the noneconomic damages, that can be recovered.
