What is a Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death occurs when a person’s passing is caused by the negligent or wrongful acts or inactions of another. A wrongful death can result from any number of causes, including, careless or drunk driving, accidents in the workplace and even premises liability.

Who can file a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Immediate family members may be entitled to monetary damages following a fatal accident. The most common beneficiaries are surviving spouses and children, and sometimes parents.

The surviving family members must demonstrate that they are suffering the loss of financial support, love, care, comfort, supervision, guidance, household assistance and general society provided by the deceased.

Beneficiaries are entitled to recover money for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include the financial contributions which the decedent would have made had he or she survived. It also includes the recovery for funeral services in memory of the decedent and for burial costs.

Non-economic damages include loss of love, society, companionship, comfort, affection, solace or moral support.
