Wrongful death refers to deaths wrongfully caused by the bad act or negligence of another. These suits are filed by family members and beneficiaries of persons killed because of medical malpractice, car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents and even murder.
In a wrongful death claim, the persons suing seek to recover monetary compensation for the wages and benefits the deceased would have earned. They can also seek payment for pain and suffering, loss of companionship, as well as punitive damanges in some instances.
