What Qualifies as a Wrongful Death Claim?
When someone dies due to the fault of another person or entity – whether by accident or otherwise – the survivors (family) may be justified in pursuing compensation for their loss, including lost wages from the deceased, lost companionship, funeral expenses or even mental anguish and emotional trauma.
Every state has some form of wrongful death law involving all types of fatal accidents from simple car accidents to complicated medical malpractice or product liability. Persons, companies, and governmental agencies can be legally at fault for acting negligently (failing to act as a reasonable person would have acted) or for acting with deliberate attempt to cause harm or death.
Who May Bring a Claim and Under What Circumstances?
You and others in your immediate family, who have suffered from the loss of love, companionship and/or loss of financial support of a deceased loved one are entitled to just compensation, including:
- Wife, husband or life partner
- Dependent child/children
- Executor or administrator of the estate of the deceased on behalf of family
