Wrongful death

Wrongful death: Area of law dealing with compensation for certain causes of death such as negligence or misconduct.

Wrongful death: Wrongful death lawsuits seek compensation for the death of a person believed to be wrongfully caused by another person, corporation, organization or entity. A wrongful death action is a lawsuit typically brought by the person's family as compensation for the wrongful death. Wrongful death can be related to medical malpractice, personal injury or other specific types of law. Some common causes of wrongful death litigation include medical malpractice, car accidents, occupational death, or other accidental death. Wrongful death is typically governed by the laws in state wrongful death statutes. Wrongful death cases may receive different time limits for any statute of limitations, depending on the state and country of jurisdiction. Consult an attorney or professional legal adviser for any advice about wrongful death.
