What Our Clients Are Saying

What is Wrongful Death?

The legal definition of wrongful death is the death of a person due to the reckless, negligent, or even deliberate act of a person or entity. Such a case has four considerations:

  • The death of a human being
  • ​The death was caused by a person, group of people, organization, or other entity through negligent, reckless, or intentional actions or omissions
  • ​The surviving family of the deceased must demonstrate financial suffering caused by the unexpected death of the deceased
  • ​The family must appoint a personal representative of the estate of the deceased

In other words, a wrongful death is when what would have been a personal injury leads to a person’s death instead. A personal injury is an injury caused by another person’s negligence. Some examples include car accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, intentional killings, aviation accidents, deaths due to defective products, dog bites, and many others. If they, or other types of personal injuries, lead to someone’s death, a wrongful death suit can be filed. A wrongful death suit can also be filed if the victim’s death resulted from intentional misconduct. In such cases, the perpetrator may also face criminal charges related to the death, but a wrongful death suit is separate and different.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

  • Traffic Accidents (distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, etc.)
  • ​Defective Products
  • ​Medical Malpractice (misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, surgical error/s)
  • ​Premises Accidents
  • ​Industrial Accidents
  • ​Construction Site Accidents
  • ​Work-Related Accidents / Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Conditions or Substances
  • ​Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
  • ​Fires
  • ​Public Transportation and Aviation Accidents (Boat, Airplane, Subway, Bus)
