Wrongful death is a death caused by the misconduct of another person or entity. That misconduct can be anything from an intentional reckless act to one of fleeting negligence. The act can be carried out by one person or a corporation such as a drug company. By Illinois law, survivors of the deceased are entitled to receive compensation for a wrongful death. This is very similar to someone being compensated for an injury caused by some sort of wrongdoing.
