The loss of a loved one is among the most difficult experiences a person can endure. This difficult time is exacerbated when the loss of a loved one comes as a result of another person’s reckless or careless actions. This is referred to as a “wrongful death.”
A “wrongful death” is a death caused by the negligence or misconduct of another person. The conditions that caused the death must be such that, if the deceased person had lived, he or she would have been able to bring a personal injury claim to court themselves. If a wrongful death occurs, dependent individuals may be entitled to compensation. Dependent individuals include a spouse, children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces and nephews, or any person who can prove he or she was dependent upon the deceased.
