What is wrongful death?

Wrongful death claims are made against an individual or entity that causes the death of a person through negligence, recklessness, or malice. The family members of the deceased must prove that the accused party was solely responsible for the victim’s death in order to obtain financial compensation for their loss.

While these legal actions cannot replace a treasured loved one, they can help to ensure that the responsible parties are held legally accountable and to obtain the resources necessary to contend with end of life expenses, funeral costs, therapy, loss of companionship, loss of income, and other relevant concerns.
