Our legal experts can oversee your wrongful death case from start to finish.

Wrongful death is a legal cause of action that occurs when someone’s death is the result of another person or party’s negligence, recklessness, or misconduct. In a wrongful death claim, the surviving family members of the deceased person seek compensation for the losses and damages that arose from the death. Wrongful death lawsuits are one way to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases are based on the legal principle that people and entities have a duty to care for others. If someone fails to meet this duty, it can result in legal liability. Some common scenarios for wrongful death claims include car accidents, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents.

The damages available in a wrongful death claim can include both economic and non-economic losses. For example, damages can include medical expenses related to the deceased person’s injury or illness, funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and pain and suffering.
