What You Need to Know About Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death cases seek to protect the rights of families of victims who die as a result of another’s negligent actions or misconduct, including murder. In criminal cases, there may be a separate criminal trial relating to the fatality; however, a wrongful death lawsuit is considered a civil action and does not involve or jeopardize criminal charges.
Wrongful death cases can be filed by a spouse, child or parent of the deceased who wishes to seek compensation for the emotional and financial damage caused by the loss of a loved one. This compensation may be used to cover funeral and burial expenses, lost wages and benefits, mental anguish of surviving family members, medical bills, and property damage or financial losses connected to the death.
