Wrongful Death Claims

  • A Wrongful death claim is a claim brought against a defendant who has caused someone’s death, either through negligence (i.e. reckless driving) or as a result of some intentional action.

  • A wrongful death claim is a civil action brought forth by relatives of a deceased victim whose death is caused by the negligence of another party.

  • It is clear now more than ever that one person’s negligence can have devastating effects on other individuals. This is quite common in accidents that result in death.
