Wrongful Death

A wrongful death claim is a suit that arises from the death of an individual that was caused by the conduct of another. Following a fatal accident, there may be a criminal investigation and civil action. There often are circumstances for the victim’s (the decedent’s) survivors to initiate a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death suit is different from other types of personal injury claims because the actual victim (the decedent) is not filing suit, rather it is the family members or the decedent’s estate. As such, a wrongful death claim is brought to recover damages for the injuries that the surviving family and/or estate have suffered due to the death of the victim.

Wrongful Death Accidents are traumatic experiences that leave the victim’s loved ones vulnerable and in shock. The victim’s surviving family members are often confused with what to do, who to call, or where to find help after loss from a sudden accident. It can leave victims in a troublesome situation, they are in pain and mourning the loss of their loved one.
