Legally speaking, wrongful death is the term that’s use when someone dies or is killed by another entity’s negligence. The “entity” can be other people, a company, or both. Litigation in a wrongful death case is usually brought by a representative of the victim or the victim’s estate. Often, that’s an immediate relative.
Often wrongful death lawsuits originate from other personal injury practice areas. These include, but are not limited to:
- Workers’ compensation
- Auto accidents
- Faulty products
- Pharmaceutical drugs
- Dog bites
- Elder abuse
