What Can Wrongful Death Cases Include?

As a legal term, wrongful death encompasses a wide range of circumstances. Generally speaking, if your loved one died due to someone else's intentional disregard for their life, medical malpractice, or the failure of a person or organization to maintain reasonable standards of safety, you may be eligible to pursue a wrongful death case in civil court. More specific examples include death caused by:

  • Homicide and manslaughter (separate from criminal court proceedings)
  • A car accident that was the fault of an intoxicated, distracted, or otherwise irresponsible driver
  • Failure of a doctor to diagnose a condition or treat it in a timely manner

Wrongful death cases provide families of deceased loved ones with a method of pursuing compensation for financial burdens resulting from their death. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical bills
  • Loss of wages
  • Property damage

Clients may also pursue punitive damages, in which the responsible party must pay more than that which is required to ease the family's burden as a form of punishment.
