What is a wrongful death claim? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

A wrongful death lawsuit claims the victim was killed as a result of negligence, or another type of unjust action on the part of the individual or entity being sued, and the victim’s survivors are entitled to damages as a result of the improper conduct. A wrongful death claim is just a negligence lawsuit in which the individual injured died from the injury.
