Wrongful death is a claim brought by a spouse, children or parents of a deceased victim of the negligent or intentional acts of another. In many cases, personal injury victims may die from their injuries immediately or sometime after the accident. If the death of the victim can be traced to the negligence or intentional act of another, the law provides for a remedy for the surviving family members who are entitled to bring legal action.

Time limits for wrongful death claims are short. If you do not bring your wrongful death claim within the prescribed time limits, you may be barred from any recovery. It is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss the viability of your claim.

Damages that may be recoverable for wrongful death claims are:
  • Present and future loss of support and services
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Loss of parental companionship, instruction and guidance (in the case of children when there is no surviving spouse)
  • Mental anguish
  • Medical or funeral expenses
