What Is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is simply a term in the legal world to designate a case that involves a fatality. The negligent party who caused a death is responsible for paying the damages to the decedent’s estate. The estate may consist of spouses, children and siblings.
This topic is very difficult to discuss as no amount of money can replace a loved one. Nevertheless, a value needs to be placed on the decedent’s life. This value is based on many different factors including: age, sex, the number of dependents relying on the deceased for financial support, and most importantly the loss of the care, comfort and societal relationship that was taken away from the deceased survivors.
