What is wrongful death?
Wrongful death is when a person is killed due to wrongful conduct by another person or entity. Those entitled to sue are usually a spouse, next of kin, or children. Parents can also sue for wrongful death of a child. Originally, wrongful death was to protect widows and orphans as well as motivate people to prevent accidents.
In order to sue for wrongful death, you must be able to prove that the death was a direct result of the actions taken by the defendant. Unfortunately, health care providers sometimes make mistakes that result in thousands of wrongful deaths each year. If one of your loved ones was the victim of wrongful death, you may be able to recover some financial damages.
