What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death refers to the death of a human being caused by another person due to either negligence or intentional action. Wrongful death can include a wide range of circumstances involving human death, including unintentional accidents or intentional crimes. A wrongful death case is filed by the surviving members of a victim’s family for compensation for the lost presence and support of the victim.
