Wrongful death is a claim in common law jurisdictions against a person who can be held liable for a death. The claim is brought in a civil action, usually by close relatives.
There are two actions are not mutually exclusive; a person may be prosecuted criminally for causing a person's death (whether in the form of murder, manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, or some other theory) and that person can also be sued civilly in a wrongful death action.
If a family member or someone you love died in an accidental death caused by negligence, you may be able to pursue a claim for wrongful death. We offer family members compassionate and experienced legal representation during this emotionally devastating loss.
