Wrongful death cases involve claims made by the family or representative of the victim that a death was caused by the fault of another person or entity. Wrongful death cases can relate to fatal auto accidents, medical malpractice, aviation disasters, construction site accidents, or other type of catastrophic accidents.
Wrongful death lawsuits or claims may be brought by family members, beneficiaries, or other representatives of the decedent. Under applicable law, the family may recover monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have provided, and other losses to compensate the survivors and the beneficiaries.
