Wrongful death claims allow the estate of the deceased person to file a lawsuit against the party who is legally liable for the death. The suit is usually filed by a representative of the estate on behalf of surviving family members and other affected parties. A wrongful death can be caused by a wide variety of incidents and accidents including, but not limited to:

  • Car accident

  • Inadequate security at an event or venue
  • Medical malpractice
  • Construction site accident

After the accident, it is extremely important that you gather pertinent information. Any proof available that shows the fault of the person or company that was responsible for the death should be kept safely and securely. These include:

  • Photos of the accident scene
  • Medical records
  • Police reports
  • Names and contact information of witnesses and responders
  • Any related defective product
