death claims address when a person dies due to the legal fault or negligence of
another person or entity. Wrongful death lawsuits seek to provide compensation
for the survivors’ loss, which may include funeral expenses, lost wages from
the deceased, and lost companionship. These types of lawsuits can cover a wide
range of fatal accidents, from simple car accidents to detailed medical
malpractice or product liability cases. Persons, businesses, and even
governments can be legally at fault for acting either negligently or
intentionally in cases of wrongful death.
