Losing a loved one is a very painful experience. But it gets even more so painful when the death of a loved one was caused by someone’s negligence. You do not have to live pained by someone’s fault that has even caused you your source of sustenance. Wrongful death claims are brought against a defendant who has caused someone’s death either negligently or through intentional harm. A wrongful death claim is applicable when a victim who would otherwise have a personal injury claim is killed as a result of either negligence or an intentional harmful act on the part of the defendant.
When that death is not natural and the loved one was taken too soon through the intentional or unintentional action of another person or people, there may be a way to take action regarding the consequences of the sudden loss and the costs involved in it.

Types of Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is known by law to be a case where someone who would be filing a personal injury claim dies either through negligence or by intention. There are different ways through which wrongful death comes about. One of these ways is through medical malpractice where the defendant does not survive. A victim can also be intentionally killed. We will be able to explain to you how such a case is made. Car accidents can also result in wrongful death through the injuries acquired.

What to Expect
Filing a lawsuit for wrongful death is very complicated and made more so by strict statute of limitations and other statutes imposed by different states. It is also a highly emotional issue as it involves the death of a loved one. A wrongful death claim is usually filed by a representative of the estate of the deceased victim, on behalf of survivors who had a relationship with the victim. Exactly who those survivors can vary from state to state.
