Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Wrongful death lawsuits arise when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another person or business. A wrongful death lawsuit seeks to recover monetary compensation for surviving family members as a result of the loss of their loved one. Wrongful death lawsuits may also seek other relief intended to minimize the risk that another person will be killed in the future.

Common types of wrongful death lawsuits involve medical malpractice, vehicular accidents, construction accidents, and criminal acts that result in death.
