Sometimes serious personal injuries can result in death. When those injuries are caused by another, it is known as wrongful death. If someone dies because of the wrongful act of another, the family of the person who died may have a legal claim. If the death was caused by negligence – in a car accident or as a result of malpractice or in some other context – a claim for wrongful death may be brought to seek compensation for the death of that loved one.
