What Is a Wrongful Death?
The wrongful death of a loved one can come in many forms. Common wrongful death lawsuits are centered around motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents or slips and falls to name just a few. A wrongful death occurs when one party is negligent in either their action or inaction and it resulted in the death of another party. An example of a wrongful death might be the failure of an employer to provide their workers with a safe working environment and it resulted in a death. Another example would be if someone was driving while under the influence and caused an accident which resulted in a death. In both of these examples a person’s actions or inactions resulted in a wrongful death and they are a possible target for a lawsuit.
