A wrongful death is defined as the loss of life to a person as a result of another’s actions. Whether the act was intentional or unintentional is of no consequence. If an individual or entity causes harm to another person and the injuries sustained result in that person’s death, then the individual may be held liable for wrongful death. A wrongful death claim has no correlation with criminal action, meaning that even if the defendant is cleared of criminal charges, the victim’s family may still be able to pursue civil action for wrongful death.
Though pursuing a lawsuit will not bring your loved one back, the Spurgeon Law Firm will ensure that those responsible are held accountable for their actions. We can help relieve the financial burden placed on you and your family by bringing the responsible individual or parties to justice.
Who is Liable for a Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death claim may be filed against anyone or any institution that was legally at fault for a person’s death. This can include:
- Medical Institutions
- Government Institutions
Whether it’s a car accident or a medical malpractice suit, the surviving family members or other real parties in interest may file a wrongful death claim in behalf of the deceased to cover pain and suffering, medical expenses, funeral expenses, and lost wages.
