Questions About Wrongful Death Claims
What is a wrongful death lawsuit?

Wrongful death lawsuits are usually brought by a family member such as a parent, spouse or child of a person who was caused to die due to the negligence, recklessness, or malicious intent of another person or entity.

Can the family recover money for a wrongful death lawsuit?

A wrongful death lawsuit actually is about the injury suffered by the family members or other people who relied on an individual for support. This may include relying on the decedent for financial, emotional, housing or other types of support. Also, a lawsuit can help recover for the decedent’s, medical expenses, funeral expenses as well as past, present and future lost wages and income.

Can you recover for pain and suffering in a wrongful death lawsuit?

While a wrongful death award compensates the survivor or survivors, a pain and suffering award will compensate the pain and suffering experienced by the decedent before he died. However, you must be able to show that the pain and suffering must have been due to the injuries that eventually caused death, and the person who died must have been conscious enough to actually experience the pain and suffering.

What is the statute of limitations on a wrongful death lawsuit?

A cause of action for wrongful death must be filed typically within two years of the date of death with some exceptions.
