              Wrongful Death


A "wrongful death" claim is a statutory cause of action that may be brought on the behalf of the surviving spouse, children and parents of a decedent to compensate them for the losses they sustained as a result of the wrongful death of their family member.

The "wrongful" act that resulted in death may have been intentional, reckless or negligent, as long as it is of the character that would have permitted the decedent to maintain an action for injuries had death not resulted. There are important issues to consider about wrongful death.

A potential claimant should always seek the advice of an attorney without delay. In certain cases, there may also be other deadlines within the first two years that may impact the case. It is advisable to consult with an attorney as soon as possible for other reasons as well. Memories of the event or events in question tend to fade and witnesses and potential witnesses may later be unavailable because they have moved, become incapacitated, etc.
