What is a wrongful death lawsuit?
Essentially, a wrongful death lawsuit aims to prove that the person who was killed died as a result of the negligence (or another type of action that is found to be “unjust”) of another person, body or entity that you are now suing.

The wrongful death lawsuit aims to prove that because of this negligence or unjust behavior, the victim’s survivors are entitled to compensation resulting from that improper conduct.

How is a wrongful death lawsuit different to other negligence lawsuits?
The wrongful death lawsuit is a very different kind of negligence lawsuit for the primary reason that the person (or people) filing this claim is not person who was injured but instead loved ones of the deceased.

Over hundreds of years ago the general principles of the wrongful death lawsuit were passed over the The United States from England and at this time the reasoning was that the claim did not exist because it was assumed that the claim died with the victim. Therefore, the idea that the loved ones a victim leaves behind should be compensated for their loss is a relatively new idea in terms of the law and this is what makes the wrongful death claim so different to other kinds of personal injury claims.

Since adopting the general principles of personal injury law from England all those hundreds of years ago, The United States has passed wrongful death laws that now do provide compensation for people who may have been damaged because of the death of a loved one. This means that all US states today have some form of a wrongful death claim action in force.

What are the general principles in all wrongful death lawsuits?
In general, a wrongful death lawsuit filed in the US follows the same general structure and operates under the same general principles.

Most wrongful death claims in the US consist of four basic elements which are listed for your convenience below:

1. For a wrongful death claim to be considered wrongful death, the death must be caused, in whole or part, by the conduct of the defendant. This is something that you would be working on with your lawyer to prove.

2. Your wrongful death lawyer will be working to prove that the defendant was negligent or strictly liable for the death of your loved one

3. Wrongful death claims are only ever filed when there is a surviving spouse, surviving children, beneficiaries or other kinds of dependents. If you are unclear as to whether this applies to you in your situation, consult the wrongful death lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. at any time.

4. Wrongful death lawsuits arise when loved ones find themselves in financial difficulties as a result of the unexpected death of the victim.
