Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is defined as a death that has been caused by someone else's negligence or recklessness. For example, deaths caused by drunk driving, medical malpractice, or defective products may be considered wrongful deaths under the law. Wrongful death lawsuits are normally filed by the surviving spouse, children or parents.

Damages that may be covered in a wrongful death case generally include:

  • Medical, funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Losses suffered by the spouse, children, or next of kin, including loss of parental training or companionship.
  • Punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others
