What Is A Wrongful Death Suit?

When a death is caused by the careless or reckless actions of another person, it is considered "wrongful." Even if the actions were not criminally negligent, the wrongdoer may be subject to a civil court proceeding called a wrongful death action. While a criminal court proceeding is about punishing the wrongdoer, a wrongful death action is about compensating the survivors of the deceased person.

Family members can seek compensation for losses such as:

  • Medical expenses incurred prior to death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost financial support
  • Lost services provided by the family member
  • Loss of consortium or companionship for a spouse
  • Loss of parental guidance for a child
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
