We are here to help with compassion and dedicated experience.

What is considered a Wrongful Death Accident?

Wrongful death is a death caused by the negligent, willful, or wrongful act of another.  If your loved one has died due to the negligence of reckless or drunk driving, this qualifies as a wrongful death—a death which could have been prevented and avoided had it not been for the negligence or intentional action of another.

A wrongful death lawsuit is legal action in which damages are sought out against the person who has caused someone else’s death, whether it was due to negligence or some intentional action.

A child may be entitled to compensation for the personal loss of a guardian as well as the amount of financial support the child would have received until the child is officially considered an adult at the age of 18.

A spouse may be entitled to recover damages for loss of their partnership under emotional distress also known as mental anguish. A lawsuit for wrongful death may be filed by the executor or administrator of the estate of the deceased or by the individual beneficiaries (family members).

According to the CDC’s mortality data for 2019, all unintentional injury deaths throughout the United States totaled 173,040.  Of those deaths, unintentional fall deaths numbered 39,433, motor vehicle traffic deaths totaled 37,595 and unintentional poisoning deaths totaled 65,773.
