What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death cases are civil cases that arise as a result of negligent or wrongful acts that cause the death of another person. They are brought by the surviving family members of the person killed or the person responsible for the deceased’s estate. Examples of possible wrongful death cases span a range of incident possibilities.

  • Medical malpractice: If your loved one was diagnosed wrongly, given improper treatment or medicine, or a surgical error occurred, the people responsible for their treatment could be held liable for their death.
  • Defective products: If a product was poorly designed, damaged in the manufacturing process, or improperly labeled, it could lead injury or death.
  • Workplace accidents: If someone is forced to work with hazardous equipment or dangerous materials without proper training, this could lead to injury or death.
  • Vehicle accidents: If a driver kills someone while speeding, driving under the influence, driving distracted, or any other form of reckless driving, they could be liable for the death. Also, any defects on an improperly maintained roadway could lead to the agency responsible for the road’s maintenance being held liable for a death.
  • Law enforcement encounter: There are times when police officers use more force than necessary and kill someone. They could be held liable for the death if it is shown that they used excessive force.

These are just a few examples of possible wrongful death cases, but there are many more. We advise you to seek legal assistance when determining whether or not to pursue a wrongful death case.

A successful wrongful death case can secure money for funeral and burial expenses, lost and future income that the deceased would have made, and compensation for emotional and putative damages. While we know that no amount of money is a substitute for having your loved one, it can give some closure by holding those responsible for the death liable.
