When someone is killed as a result of negligence or intentional conduct, there may be grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death suits are brought against the person or company that caused the death by the surviving family of the deceased, including parents, children, and brothers or sisters.
Examples of wrongful deaths include a person killed by a drunk driver, a passenger killed in an airplane crash, and a child who dies as a result of an unsafe toy. The common thread among wrongful death cases is that the victims’ lives end due to the negligence of another party.
