What is Wrongful Death?
Justia defines wrongful death as, “…when somebody is killed because of another person or entity’s negligence or misconduct. Although there may be a criminal prosecution related to the fatality, a wrongful death lawsuit is a civil action that is separate and distinct from any criminal charges. The standard of proof is lower in a civil case than it is in a criminal case for murder or manslaughter.”
Some of the most common wrongful death causes include vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, workplace catastrophes, and birth accidents.
When processing a wrongful death claim and case, courts will weigh various factors in determining damages awarded to the survivors of the deceased.
