Wrongful Death

If a person is killed because of the wrongful conduct of a person or persons, the decedent’s heirs and other beneficiaries may file a wrongful death action against those responsible for the decedent’s death. This area of tort law is governed by statute. Wrongful death statutes vary from state to state, but in general they define who may sue for wrongful death and what, if any, limits may be applied to an award of damages.

A wrongful death claim generally consists of four elements:

  1. The death was caused, in whole or part, by the conduct of the defendant.
  2. The defendant was negligent or strictly liable for the victim’s death.
  3. There is a surviving spouse, children, beneficiaries or dependents.
  4. Monetary damages have resulted from the victim’s death.
