Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims are brought by family members when someone dies in an accident.

When someone is killed in an accident caused by another party's negligence, the deceased’s family may bring a wrongful death lawsuit. In these types of personal injury cases, the family members (or "estate") of the deceased demand compensation for the loss of income, companionship, and other damages.

In this section we’ll cover how the law defines wrongful death, who can bring a claim, and what legal elements must be present.
