Can I file a wrongful death suit for an unemployed person?

When a person you love is killed before his or her time, a wrongful death suit is often appropriate. However, despite the immense loss of the one you love, it may be difficult to understand how a wrongful death may proceed if the person who was killed never held a job. Wrongful death suits primarily reward survivors some monetary approximation of income lost because of the death, but a person who did not provide income still has value.

Generally speaking, it is possible to argue that a person who did not provide income for a family still contributed to the family in valuable, if less tangible ways. For instance, if your husband or wife was killed, and they spent their time in the home, then it is reasonable to claim that they supplied the home with necessary comfort and guidance.
