What is a wrongful death claim or case?


A wrongful death claim is a claim brought by the family members or estate of a person who is killed in an accident. Typically speaking, it’s an accident case involving either an 18-wheeler, or a workplace injury, or car wrecks.

And those claims belong to the estate of the person that died as well as the family members that survive.

In our cases, we’re usually looking at the negligence of those who caused that death.

These are important cases that require immediate action.
