Wrongful Death

In worse cases, an injury from a personal injury accident can cause death. Surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death case. A wrongful death case is a legal action that can be brought against an individual or company when the negligent or wrongful act of another caused the death of someone. This action is typically brought by a relative of the deceased, such as their spouse, parent, or child, asserting that their loved one would not have died if it were not for the negligent or wrongful act of another. Wrongful death cases cover both non-intentional and intentional acts, including:

  • medical malpractice
  • car accidents
  • defective products
  • workplace injuries
  • and criminal activity.

If a jury finds negligence in a case involving a wrongful death, monetary damages may be awarded to compensate for lost wages and pain and suffering.

Economic Damages
