Thus, it is crucial that the bereaved become aware that they have the authority to file a wrongful death suit. A wrongful death suit allows families to hold parties liable for the irrevocable damages they have caused. Depending on the scale of events/ depending on the type of situation, settlements can be anywhere from several hundred thousand dollars to tens of millions of dollars.
