What is Wrongful Death?
The death and unexpected loss of a loved one are among the most challenging experiences a person can encounter. When the death was brought on by another’s negligence or wrongdoing, the pain and sorrow cut even deeper. Individuals who have lost a love one need support and guidance to seek proper justice throughout the tragedy.
A death is considered to be a “wrongful death” when the victim passes away as a direct result of the negligent, careless, reckless, or wrongful act of a business, individual, or municipality. According to the National Center for Health Statistics (CDC), there are approximately 130,557 wrongful deaths a year.
A wrongful death case differs from murder. Wrongful deaths are civil suits rather than a criminal charge. The guilty party might deal with separate criminal charges, a wrongful death suit has to do with seeking justice and compensation for the victims.
An experienced wrongful death attorney can help you seek compensation for medical and funeral costs, loss of income, pain and suffering, now and in the future.
