Wrongful Death Law
The Complexities of Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
A wrongful death occurs only when the neglectful act of another directly results in the loss of life.
The victim who lost their life is referred to as the “decedent.”
Wrongful Death Cases are not simple to represent.
In most personal injury cases, the victim files a claim against the negligent party, but in a wrongful death case, the victim's family members, or estate, files a claim for the recovery of damages.
The wrongful death case applies to the surviving spouse when there is no surviving spouse, the cause of action then belongs to the decedent’s children.
If there are also no children, the decedent's parents then have the right to file suit. When the deceased does not have a surviving spouse, child or parent, the administrator of the decedent's estate can sue on behalf of the next of kin.
Common Causes of Fatal Injuries
According to the CDC, accidental deaths are the leading cause of death in the United States for people between the ages of 1 and 42.
For all age groups, accidents are the fifth leading cause of death in the United States.
The most prevalent causes of accidental death are:
- Fatal automobile accidents
- truck accidents
- boat accidents
- motorcycle accidents
- slip and falls
These accidents typically occur in the home or the community where a person lives and are often the result of negligence by a person or business.
Other types of accidental deaths include medical malpractice by doctors, nurses, pharmacies and hospitals, work injuries, fires and explosions, and pharmaceutical overdoses.
When someone you love dies an accidental death due to the fault of another, surviving family members are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Compensation for a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
The surviving family of a wrongful death victim can file suit if another party's negligence caused the loss of life. Cases can be brought against individuals, businesses, product manufacturers, trucking companies, medical institutions and other legal entities responsible for the death.
Below is a list of factors that the court takes into consideration when determining the number of damages the decedent's dependents are owed.
- Loss of Money Earned
- Loss of Future Wages
- Loss of Relationship for a Child, Spouse, or Parent
- Loss of Any Savings
- Loss of Future Retirement Pensions and Benefits
- Decedent's Pain and Suffering before their Death
- Degree of Survivor Dependency on the Deceased
