What Constitutes a Wrongful Death Case?

Jan 5, 2020

The Definition of Wrongful Death

Wrongful death refers to a tragic situation where an individual loses their life due to the negligence or intentional actions of another party. It is a devastating event that can cause immense emotional and financial distress to the surviving family members.

Identifying the Elements of a Wrongful Death Case

When determining whether a wrongful death case exists, certain elements need to be established:

Negligence or Wrongful Act

In order to file a successful wrongful death lawsuit, it must be proven that the death occurred as a result of negligence or a wrongful act committed by another party. This can include acts such as medical malpractice, car accidents caused by a drunk driver, or product defects leading to fatal incidents.


It is also crucial to establish a direct link between the negligent or wrongful act and the death of the individual. Demonstrating causation is essential in proving that the actions of the responsible party directly led to the loss of life.

Surviving Family Members

Wrongful death cases typically involve the need for surviving family members to bring forward the lawsuit. These family members may include spouses, children, parents, or other dependents who have suffered damages as a result of the loss.
