Commonly Asked Questions

What is a wrongful death lawsuit?

A wrongful death lawsuit is a legal claim filed by the surviving family members of a person who has died as a result of someone else’s negligence or intentional act. The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for the financial and emotional losses suffered by the family due to the death of their loved one.

Is it necessary to go to court to resolve a wrongful death claim?

Not all wrongful death claims go to court. Many claims are resolved through negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit and have the case decided by a judge or jury.
