What is a wrongful death claim?
A claim for wrongful death is a lawsuit taken in response to the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one. Like other personal injury claims, wrongful death involves situations where someone else’s careless or reckless actions contributed to the fatal accident. If another person’s negligence led to the death of your loved one, a wrongful death claim may allow you to hold the negligent party responsible.
Wrongful death claimants can be awarded damages for:
- Emotional suffering caused by the sudden loss of a loved one
- Noneconomic losses, including loss of companionship and loss of consortium
- Medical costs and hospital bills spent trying to prevent the death from happening
- Financial difficulties caused by funeral expenses and/or loss of supplemental income
