Wrongful death claims can be brought against anyone who, through recklessness, carelessness, negligence, or lack of skill, causes the fatality of another. Wrongful death can be the result of many types of circumstances, including drunk driving or reckless driving, medical malpractice (such as through surgical error or misdiagnosis of an illness), defective machinery or products, premises liability, or improper supervision.

There are various components of monetary damages in a wrongful death case, including:

  • Loss Of Lifetime Income
  • Loss Of Financial Support Of Dependents
