Wrongful death occurs when an innocent individual is killed in an accident caused by someone else. For example, a negligent driver could run a red light and hit another vehicle head-on, killing the driver of that vehicle. As long as the individual who was killed was not responsible for the accident or death in any way, it is wrongful death and could allow for the surviving family members to file a claim for compensation.Why File a Wrongful Death Claim?
As the immediate family member or dependent of someone killed in an accident, you deserve to hold the liable party accountable for any damages you have suffered.
