A wrongful death claim is a specific kind of personal injury claim.When someone dies due to the fault of another individual or entity, the family of the victim may be entitled to a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death suits can involve all types of fatal accidents ranging from car crashes to liability cases and even medical malpractice.

Losing A Loved One

There are many costs involved when a loved one is lost. There are numerous immediate costs, such as medical expenses resulting from the injury as well as funeral expenses for the victim. Long-term burdens can affect the victim’s family, including emotional pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of earnings, assistance and more.
