A “wrongful death” is any death that’s caused by another person or party’s wrongful or negligent conduct. Another way to put it – if the person that died was still alive and would have grounds for a personal injury claim, then it’s most likely a wrongful death.
If you are a spouse, parent, child, next of kin or personal representative you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death accident seeks a claim against the responsible party to recover compensation for the financial burden of their loved one’s death.
By filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the liable person or party, you can seek the compensation you deserve for the unexpected financial losses you have endured because of your loved one’s death. You can also fight to recover intangible losses and obtain a sense of justice that allows you and your family to heal.
