A wrongful death claim arises when a person’s life is cut short by the negligent or deliberate act of another person. When someone dies under these circumstances, the decedent’s heirs can file a lawsuit on behalf of the decedent and for the emotional and economic loss of support of their loved ones.
Common types of wrongful death lawsuits include claims for:
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home negligence
- Errors made in prescribing medication
- Car, motorcycle, and trucking accidents
- Defective products
- Workplace accidents
