Wrongful Death and Medical Malpractice. The death of a loved one can often be a very difficult time for the families of the person passing on. It is even more difficult when the person’s death was the result of the carelessness or negligence of another person. A premature death can result in emotional and financial hardship to a family due to losses of companionship and income.
Wrongful death claims often arise out of such situations as:
- Medical malpractice that results in decedent’s death
- Nursing home neglect
- Automobile or airplane accident
- Occupational exposure to hazardous conditions or substances
- Criminal behavior
- Death during a supervised activity
The law permits a person to recover damages for grief or sorrow, loss of probable support, companionship, society, comfort and consortium, and damages for pain, suffering or disfigurement of the decedent. A claim may be maintained by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate.
