When a loved one has been taken from you by the negligence of someone else, the initial grief you experience often turns to anger and a series of questions that may seem like they have no answers. How could this have happened? Why did the other person act so negligently? Could anything have been done to avoid this? How will I provide for my family without my loved one’s income?
What Is Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death is one that results from the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of another person or organization. An example of wrongful death would be:
- When an individual chooses to drink and drive and then causes a fatal accident, the victim’s surviving family can bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver.
