What is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Wrongful DeathIf your family member’s death was caused by a wrongful or negligent act, your family may be able to file a wrongful death claim. This may include an accident due to negligence or carelessness, a product that was defective, medical negligence or malpractice, or an intentional act like murder. Wrongful death claims are handled in civil court and are separate from any criminal charges that may be filed as a result of the death.
Types of Compensation for Wrongful DeathCompensation for a wrongful death claim is determined through a settlement or decided by a judge or jury if the matter does not settle pre-trial. Two types of compensation can be granted: compensation paid to the estate of the deceased and compensation paid to the deceased’s family.
- Compensation for Estate– This includes amounts that the deceased was deprived of contributing to their estates, such as lost wages and costs paid by the estate for funeral and medical expenses.
- Compensation for Family– This includes amounts paid for loss of companionship and mental pain and anguish.
