Wrongful Death

Generally speaking, a wrongful death is a death caused by another’s negligence, recklessness, malpractice, or inaction. Examples include, a pedestrian killed by a drunk driver, a woman murdered by her ex-husband, and a child struck and killed by a careless teenage motorists.

In such cases, the families of the deceased can file wrongful death personal injury lawsuits on their loved ones’ behalves. These civil lawsuits, which do not bear any criminal charges, help families recover damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, mental anguish, loss of companionship, medical costs, and other expenses. If you have lost a loved one to wrongful death, you may be eligible for damages.
