What is a wrongful death? A wrongful death is the death of an individual due to the negligent, reckless or intentional conduct of another. Examples include a death caused by a drunk driver, a dangerous or defective product, the construction of an unsound structure or building, nursing home negligence, or medical malpractice.
If your family has recently lost a loved one due to the negligence of another individual or company, it is best to contact a wrongful death attorney to discuss your legal options.
