What Can Be Considered Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death occurs when one or more individuals are killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another. It’s not a criminal charge, as the civilian is usually the one who seeks the claim against the defendant. Further, the offender is punished by owing financial compensation to the bereaved rather than serving jail time. In addition to a wrongful death claim, a defendant may also face criminal charges.

Instances that may be involved in a wrongful death claim:

  • Faulty machinery or appliances
  • Unsafe working conditions
  • Medical malpractice
  • Automobile or airplane accidents
  • Exposure to hazardous chemicals

In order to pursue a wrongful death claim, a representative of the deceased’s estate must be appointed by a probate court. The representative holds the right to pursue a claim if they believe wrongful death has occurred. Damages from the case will be distributed to family members of the deceased as determined by the court.
