A wrongful death claim is when a person can be held civilly liable for the death or fatal accident of another. The decedent’s estate typically brings a wrongful death action, although in some cases a family member may also have a separate claim for damages or loss.
If you have lost a family member in an accident, or due to someone’s negligence or improper conduct, you should consult an experienced wrongful death & personal injury attorney to determine whether you may have a wrongful death claim. There are time limitations for making a claim, so you should not wait too long before consulting an experienced wrongful death lawyer.
