Wrongful Death Lawyers

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.

Causes of Wrongful Death

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).

Wrongful Death Compensation

The purpose of wrongful death law is to compensate for harm to a person resulting in death. A wrongful death lawsuit allows the surviving dependents or beneficiaries, such as a spouse, child, or dependent parent, to receive monetary damages as a result of the defendant's negligent conduct.

Wrongful death compensation may include the following:

  • Compensation for pain and suffering.
  • Recovery of loss of earnings of the decedent.
  • Compensation for loss of companionship.
  • Reimbursement for burial and funeral expenses.
  • Recovery of present and future financial losses.
  • Reimbursement for out of pocket expenses incurred.
  • Reimbursement or payments of medical expenses incurred.
