There is nothing more devastating than the wrongful death of a family member. Matters are made even worse when the death causes mental and financial anguish to those who remain.
A wrongful death lawsuit arises when a death is caused by the conduct or negligence of another party. However, it is unlike other suits in that the wrongful death victim’s family, rather than the victim, files the claim. A wrongful death suit can provide relief to family members who have been injured emotionally and financially as a result of the death. The damages recovered do not include damages that are personal to the decedent, since the decedent is not allowed to recover for pain and suffering, mental stress, etc.
