What is a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful death is defined as  a person or business that is liable for the death  of an innocent victim. When a person dies or is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another, the surviving family members of the deceased can sue the negligent parties for the damages that they caused. Wrongful death can be a result of homicide, medical malpractice, transportation accidents, exposure to toxic substances, product malfunctions, pedestrian collisions, police brutality, and any other instance caused by the wrongdoing of another.

Economic and non-economic damages are taken into consideration when looking into a wrongful death claim. These can include high medical bills, loss of benefits, funeral services costs, emotional distress, loss of income, loss of companionship, and much more. Wrongful death lawsuits are sometimes combined with a “survival action” case.


The main difference between a wrongful death claim and a survival action claim is that wrongful death focuses on the damages of the deceased’s family members. While a survival action case focuses on the damages and suffering caused to the deceased and what compensation they would have recovered had they not passed.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Each state has their own laws covering who can file a wrongful death suit on behalf of the deceased. These people usually include individuals that are related to or depend financially on the person that died. The law usually allows the following people to file a wrongful death case:

  • Surviving spouses;

  • Domestic partners (registered domestic partnership);

  • Children of the deceased;

  • Financial dependents, parents, minors under the care of the deceased;

  • Personal representatives.

These people can differ from state to state; our wrongful death lawyers will help you discover if you are eligible to file a case on behalf of your loved one.

While no amount of money will bring back a lost loved one, the justice and compensation our attorneys will achieve can help with expenses for funeral costs, medical bills, therapy treatment, and other assistance you and your family may need.
