Wrongful Death Overview

Definition of Wrongful Death

What Is the Definition of Wrongful Death?

The definition of wrongful death is a death that occurs when someone’s negligence or other bad acts cause the death of another person. In such cases, the victim’s family may have a wrongful death claim against the responsible parties. A wrongful death lawsuit cannot, of course, bring back a deceased family member, but it can provide survivors the money they need to pay unexpected medical bills and funeral costs.
