What is wrongful death?

Legally, wrongful death is defined as the death of an individual as a result of another party’s negligent actions. The “other party” may be another person, a group of people, or a company. In order for a wrongful death lawsuit to be successful in court, it needs to have the following four components:

  • Death of an individual
  • Death was caused by someone else’s negligence (or with their intent to cause damage)
  • Surviving family or dependents suffering from monetary strains due to the loss
  • Presence of a personal representative of the deceased’s estate

With these four components present, one may be able to bring to court a successful wrongful death case.

Medical Malpractice Causes of Wrongful Death

Individuals may suffer wrongful death due to medical malpractice. Common types of medical mistreatment that can lead to a wrongful death case include the following:

  • Surgical malpractice/error
  • Medication or pharmaceutical error
  • Birth injury
  • Diagnosis errors
  • Negligence

People who have lost a loved one to one of the above forms of medical malpractice should seek damages for such mistreatment and suffering.
