What Is a Wrongful Death?
Any death that can be proven to be caused by the wrongdoing or negligence of another person or party is a wrongful death. In such cases, the deceased’s beneficiaries will be entitled to a financial settlement. Often wrongful death cases involve multiple parties such as businesses, doctors, hospitals, and individuals who may have been responsible for causing the wrongful death.
Some common situations that could lead to a lawsuit are:
- Carelessness by hospital workers in an emergency that leads to a misdiagnosis, and causes the death of the patient who would have otherwise survived
- A defective auto part failure, which caused an accident and death
- Medical mistakes
Wrongful Death Compensation
After the death of a loved one, there are many different factors that come into play to determine the type and degree of compensation you will be entitled to.
Wrongful death compensation is determined by:
- The deceased’s income
- The amount of savings he or she had
- How many dependents the deceased had
- How much negligence was involved in the wrongful death
