Wrongful death is when a person died due to another person’s negligent, unintentional actions. For example, due to a defective product, it may be dead due to an accident due to drugs or medical devices due to doctors’ fault due to medical errors.
Each state has its nuances regarding compensation for damage to the relatives of the deceased.
In this case, claims can be filed by the spouse, adult children, parents, and deceased relatives. But it is important to meet the statute of limitations, after which the claimant will no longer be able to receive compensation for damage.
It is morally tough to independently defend your rights in court if you lose a loved one. It is better to entrust this to a professional lawyer.
