What is wrongful death and what to do about it?
A wrongful death claim is a legal action pursued before the courts when someone else’s negligence caused the death of a loved one.
Who can file a wrongful death claim? In general, the parents or the children of the deceased.
What kind of damages are recoverable in a wrongful death action? Well, certainly the medical bills, certainly the loss of earnings and the loss of consortium. Loss of consortium is really the loss of the companionship of the person who’s passed away.
People also asked me the question: “well, my son never had a job…” A claim can still be made, even though the person never had a job because loss of earnings is only one component of the damages of the person who’s left behind.
