When someone dies as a result of the negligence of another, the family of the victim can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the accountable party. Wrongful death claims can be brought in matters involving medical malpractice, automobile accidents, construction accidents, personal injury, dangerous products, harmful pharmaceuticals and in any other situation which resulted in the untimely death of the victim. Even though the death was unintentional, the negligent party who caused the death is still responsible to compensate the victim’s family.
Obviously, nothing can bring your loved one back and no amount of money will ever replace the companionship a family loses when a loved one dies. However, holding the negligent person accountable for the death of a family member can provide some solace.
