A wrongful death suit is generally filed by the spouse, children, or sometimes by the grandparents of the deceased person. Wrongful death laws allow the survivors of the deceased person to obtain financial compensation for the loss of their loved one, including loss of consortium (society and companionship), compensation for the income that person would have earned in their lifetime and payment of the medical bills.
Examples of suits for wrongful death include, but are not limited to, catastrophic motor vehicle collisions, catastrophic injuries, dangerous lands, roadways, and buildings, dangerous and defective products, medical malpractice and negligence, criminal acts, violent crimes and civil rights violations.
