Wrongful death as a legal term that means a death that has been caused by the fault of another person. For example, deaths caused by drunk driving, the manufacture of a defective or dangerous product, the construction of an unsound structure or building, or failing to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered under the law as “wrongful deaths”. A wrongful death claim is generally filed by a family member or beneficiary of the individual who passed away. In some instances, these claims are filed in order to obtain monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have provided. Other damages that may be recovered include: (1) Pain, suffering or mental anguish suffered by the survivor of the decedent; (2) Loss of companionship, care, or protection; (3) Expense associated with the death (i.e. medical and funeral); and (4) Punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others.
