A wrongful death claim is a legal action that is filed against a person who is being held accountable for a death. The claim asserts that the death was brought about by some sort of negligence, wrongdoing, or even criminal act. The deceased’s relatives are considered to be entitled to monetary compensation for medical bills, funeral and burial costs, loss of wages, grief, and loss of consortium (companionship).
These damages are known as compensatory damages. Punitive damages could be imposed as a punishment for negligence and/or ill intent of the responsible party or parties.
