Loss of family or loved ones due to neglegence.
A "wrongful death" occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, company or entity.
The idea behind a wrongful death lawsuit is that the wrongful death, in addition to injuring the person who died, also injured people who depended upon the deceased for financial or emotional support.
Some common causes of wrongful death are motor vehicle accidents, drunk drivers, train accidents, pedestrian accidents, plane crashes, medical malpractice, construction accidents, industrial accidents, fires, and defective products (product liability).
