Addressing Your Wrongful Death Inquiries

What is a wrongful death?
A wrongful death is a legal term referring to a situation in which a person dies as a result of the negligence, misconduct, or intentional actions of another individual, company, or entity. In such cases, the deceased person's surviving family members or estate may file a wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation for their loss.

Wrongful death claims can arise from various circumstances, including but not limited to:

  1. Medical malpractice: When a healthcare provider's negligence or error causes a patient's death.
  2. Automobile accidents: When a driver's reckless, negligent, or intoxicated actions result in a fatal crash.
  3. Workplace accidents: When an employer fails to provide a safe working environment, leading to a worker's death.
  4. Defective products: When a manufacturer, distributor, or retailer provides a faulty product that causes a consumer's death.
  5. Criminal actions: When an individual's intentional acts or violence result in the death of another person.
Laws governing wrongful death claims vary by jurisdiction, and the types of damages that can be awarded may include medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of income, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering. It's essential to consult with an attorney experienced in wrongful death cases to understand the specific laws and procedures in the relevant jurisdiction.
