Legal Representation For Wrongful Death/Fatal Accident
Wrongful death is a claim against a person who can be held liable for a death. The claim is brought in a civil action, usually by close relatives, as enumerated by statute. Wrongful death cases need to be carefully investigated to determine who is responsible and what sources of insurance may be available to pay for your damages.
Wrongful death claims are brought against a defendant who has caused someone’s death either negligently or through intentional harm. Wrongful death claims allow the estate of the deceased person to file a lawsuit against the party who is legally liable for the death.
