Losing a loved one under unexpected and tragic circumstances is never easy and can devastate a family for a long time. Sadly, when the loss is caused by the irresponsible or reckless actions of someone else, the pain can be especially acute. In this type of situation, families may have to cope with a wide range of unexpected costs, including medical and funeral expenses, in addition to the pain they are experiencing.
Wrongful death claims are civil actions brought against parties whose negligent or wrongful acts cause the death of close family members. These types of claims arise in a variety of ways, including auto accidents, defective and unsafe product,s or falls. Legal action for wrongful death cases belongs to the descendant’s immediate family members, usually a surviving spouse, children or sometimes parents. Wrongful death lawsuits involve the circumstance where the victim was killed by the negligent, reckless, or intentional acts of the defendant.
