WRONGFUL DEATH

Wrongful death occurs when someone is killed due to another’s negligence or recklessness. 

A wrongful death claim is a lawsuit that may be filed by a fatally injured victim’s family on behalf of their loved one. 

A wrongful death claim allows family members of a person killed in an accident that another party caused to seek compensation for their losses such as loss of financial support, lost companionship, emotional and psychological damages, funeral expenses, and more. The liable party may be an individual, a company, a hospital, or a government entity. 

Common causes of wrongful death include medical malpractice, reckless driving of another motorist, dangerous driving conditions due to poor city planning, defective products, and equipment, etc.

WRONGFUL DEATH

A “Wrongful Death” occurs when a person dies as a result of another’s negligence or malpractice.  The underlying principles of negligence and malpractice remain the same, only the measure of damages change.  A “Wrongful Death” can be caused by a negligent driver in an auto accident, a negligent driver in a truck accident, or from the negligence of a doctor or a hospital.  If the injured person survives, he or she is entitled to a recovery for personal injuries.  However, if the injured person dies, damages move from the injured person to the surviving spouse and in some cases to the decedent’s children or estate.  The claim must be brought by the decedent’s Personal Representative.  Like Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice claims, the lawyers of Eastmoore Crauwels & DuBose have handled dozens of Wrongful Death actions and are well equipped to aggressively litigate the rights of all survivors.
