You could sue someone for wrongful death if your loved one died as a result of someone’s negligence or misconduct. For instance, it could be that a doctor failed to decide on a C-section in time, which resulted in the loss of a mother’s or a baby’s life. It could be that someone died in a traffic accident after crashing into another vehicle controlled by a reckless driver. While a lot of wrongful death cases are unintentional, some of them may be purposeful. For instance, if a loved one was murdered, you could sue for wrongful death, which will be represented under a civil case, separate from the criminal case.
It’s important to note, however, that wrongful death cases have a statute of limitations depending on where the death happened, so it’s important that you act fast.
