A wrongful death occurs when the untimely passing of an individual is caused due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another. The liability for a wrongful death may be attributed to a single person, group of people, a business establishment, medical facility, or organization. A wrongful death occurs from a variety of reasons from an auto accident, medical malpractice, to unsafe products or prescription drugs. Those who are responsible for causing the untimely death of another may be legally liable for their actions in civil litigation.

A wrongful death civil litigation claim may be brought regardless if criminal charges are filed or not.

While we understand each family must have the time to grieve the loss of their loved one, it is also important to remember that your ability to file a wrongful death claim is limited by the Statue of Limitations regarding wrongful death civil litigation.

A wrongful death may be caused by a variety of reasons, and liability claims may be brought if the loss of life was caused due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another including, but not limited to:

  • An automobile, motorcycle, commercial truck, or other motor vehicle accident;
  • Slip and Fall Accident or Incident;
  • Medical and surgical errors;
