Wrongful Death

What is wrongful death?

A wrongful death arises when someone dies as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing.

Family members have to deal not only with a loved one’s death, but also with the loss of emotional and financial support as they are left trying to put their lives back together.

Some of the ways a wrongful death can arise include:

A wrongful death claim can generally be filed by the spouse or surviving children of the deceased person.

Damages (award, typically money, to be paid to a person as compensation for loss or injury) include medical and funeral expenses on behalf of the deceased person, as well as future earnings that the deceased person would have earned and pain and suffering by those family members left behind.
