Every year, more than 90,000 people die in the United States as a result of unintentional injuries. In fact, accidental injuries are the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. Wrongful death is the legal term used when someone causes the death of another person. Thus, a death caused by the negligent, careless, or intentional act of another person or corporation is considered a wrongful death.
Wrongful death lawsuits are brought by the family of the person who has died. The goal of this type of personal injury claim is to seek compensation for those family members who have lost a loved one in order to help defray medical costs and provide financial support.
