Wrongful Death Claims 101: An Explanation of This Complex Legal Issue

A wrongful death claim is different from other types of personal injury law suits. In such cases, the victim does not pursue the suit; rather the family or estate does. The decedent’s family or estate—the plaintiff—alleges misconduct by the party being sued—the defendant. In a wrongful death case, the plaintiff must prove:

  • The death of the victim was caused by the defendant’s wrongful act, neglect or default
  • An action to recover damages could have been filed had the injury not resulted in death
  • The victim has surviving beneficiaries, children, or dependents
  • The decedent’s death resulted in monetary damages
