- Missing income of the deceased person. This consists of the complete value the deceased member would have earned during their lifetime.
- Damages covering emotional suffering and the guidance and advice to deal with it.
- Full value of expenses such as funeral and burial expenses.
- Survival action can be recovered in some cases as well. This allows family members to recover money for medical bills and other losses.
