Wrongful death is the legal term used when someone causes the death of another person. Thus, a death caused by the negligent, careless or intentional act of another person or corporation is considered a wrongful death.
Wrongful death lawsuits are brought by the family of the person who has died. The goal of this type of personal injury claim is to seek compensation for those family members who have lost a loved one in order to help defray medical costs and provide financial support.
Some additional damages that can be assessed include lost wages, physical pain, and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of society and companionship. Since the laws regarding these types of cases can be very complex, it is extremely important to seek the advice of an experienced wrongful death lawyer who will protect your rights and those of your loved ones.
