A wrongful death claim is any incident or event where the victim dies as a result of another person’s carelessness or wrongful act. Wrongful death claims can result from accidents involving automobiles, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs, dangerous or defective products, animals attacks, hunting, or defects or unsafe conditions on someone’s home or business.
Wrongful death claims are devastating to the deceased’s family, loved ones and heirs. When the victim is a wage earner, the financial burdens to the surviving family can bankrupt a family already burdened with the emotional loss. Where the loss is of a child, the surviving parents and siblings are forced to deal with significant emotional trauma and feelings of anger against the responsible party. Bringing a wrongful death claim can often assist in bringing closure to the family.
