I understand the impact upon the entire family when a family member dies, especially when it is due to the neglect of others.

Minnesota Law Now Awards Pain and Suffering Damages.
Thankfully the law was revised in 2023 to include damages for “pain and suffering” is allowed for the next of kin of the deceased. Minn. Stat. 573.02, Subd. 1, The recovery in the action is the amount the jury deems fair and just for all damages suffered by the decedent resulting from the injury prior to the decedent’s death and the pecuniary loss resulting from the death, and shall be for the exclusive benefit of the surviving spouse and next of kin, proportionate to the pecuniary loss severally suffered by the death. The court then determines the proportionate pecuniary loss of the persons entitled to the recovery and orders distribution accordingly. Funeral expenses and any demand for the support of the decedent allowed by the court having jurisdiction of the action, are first deducted and paid. Punitive damages may be awarded as provided in section 549.20.
