Why Cases Of Wrongful Death Differ

Wrongful death legal action differs from that of cases involving criminal charges. Since the law states a deceased person cannot file a lawsuit, these cases must be treated separate and apart. Typically, a spouse, close relative, family or next kin will file a claim against a person(s), corporation and/or institution that is being held liable for the death of another. A person who dies as a result of a car accident caused by a driver driving under the influence, the death of a person as a result of a defective product, and the death of a person as a result of the hazardous structure of a building are all probable cases of wrongful death. Cases of wrongful death vary greatly and must be assessed by an experienced wrongful death lawyer on an individual basis.
