What is a Wrongful Death Action?
A wrongful death occurs when somebody is killed because of another person or entity’s negligence or general misconduct. Generally, a wrongful death action is a civil tort claim that allows certain surviving family members to hold responsible parties liable for the death of a family member. While some statutes may also permit criminal proceedings in these fatal situations, wrongful death actions allow for civil recovery as a means of compensation for the suffering incurred by grieving loved ones.
