What exactly is a wrongful death claim?

A wrongful death claim can be filed when the victim was killed as a result of negligence, or another type of unjust action by an individual or entity being sued, and the victim's survivors are entitled to damages as a result of the improper conduct/negligence.

Basically, a wrongful death claim is just a negligence lawsuit in which an individual died as the result from an injury.
