Wrongful Death

This kind of claim is brought by the family members of a deceased person whose demise resulted from the wrongful act or neglect of another person or entity. Much like personal injury claims, wrongful death claims may include negligence, gross negligence, reckless conduct, or intentional misconduct, and may arise out of motor vehicle accidents, dangerous conditions on private or public property, industrial accidents, occupational exposure to dangerous chemicals, defective products or medical malpractice. Recoverable damages in a wrongful death claim may include the surviving family member’s loss of the deceased’s financial support, medical bills and related expenses incurred before death, funeral and burial expenses, income the deceased would have earned had he/she remained alive, and loss of companionship.
