Value of a Wrongful Death Case

My wife was killed in a tractor-trailer wreck.   The wreck was not her fault.  What is this case worth?

That question is impossible to answer without a great deal more information.   Was your wife working outside the home?   What was her income?  What was her age?  What was her state of health before the wreck?   How many children does she have?   Do any of those children have special needs that required her to play a bigger role in their lives after they reached the age of 18 than the ordinary adult child?  

These and many, many more questions must be answered before any lawyer can give you a reasoned opinion on the value of a wrongful death case.
