What is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is defined as that which occurs due to another person or party’s negligence or misconduct. It may occur due to:
- Medical malpractice
- Auto accident
- Airplane accident
- Murder or other criminal behavior
- Occupational exposure to hazardous conditions or materials
In order to bring a successful wrongful death case against a third party, the complainant must prove that the death occurred due to another’s negligence or malicious intent, and that there are surviving members who suffer monetary injury as a result of the loss of life. Pecuniary injury refers to said financial damages. Seeking compensation for pecuniary injury is no small matter: The court must take into account factors such as the deceased’s life expectancy, health, earning capacity, age, character, and their surviving family’s current circumstances. Building a case to prove the extent of pecuniary injuries requires gathering detailed documentation as well as testimony from all involved in the wrongful death incident; sometimes, expert witness testimony is required, as well.
