When Wrongful Death Claims Apply

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit may be necessary if your loved one died because of the negligent actions of a third party. When a victim with a viable personal injury claim dies from their injuries, their survivors can file a claim to seek compensation for damages. Wrongful death claims are appropriate in most personal injury situations where the injured party’s death was caused by the injuries claimed in the lawsuit. 

Examples of wrongful death claims include the following: 

Murder: When one person ends the life of another, a wrongful death case could be appropriate. The person responsible for the death would likely face criminal charges filed by the government, and the family would seek to recover damages in civil court. 

MedicalMalpractice: When a doctor has a patient in their care who dies from negligence, the patient’s survivors could file a wrongful death claim. Medical malpractice could also become a wrongful death suit if the doctor failed to diagnose a condition that led to a loss of life.

Automobile Accidents: When a person dies in a vehicle collision caused by negligent driving, a wrongful death suit could be appropriate. Not every automobile crash qualifies for a wrongful death suit. Cases should include incidents where the third party was driving negligently, for example:

  • Reckless Driving
  • Ignoring Driving Rules
  • Driving Under the Influence
