Wrongful death is a legal term that refers to the death of a person caused by the negligence or wrongful act of another person. When a person dies as a result of another person's negligence, the surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In these tragic circumstances, the law provides a way for the surviving family members to pursue justice. A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil action, separate and distinct from criminal charges, that can be filed to hold those responsible accountable for their actions.

To file a wrongful death lawsuit, we must first determine who is legally responsible for the death. In most cases, the person who is responsible for the death is the person who caused the accident or injury that led to the death. However, in some cases, the person who is responsible for the death may be the owner of a property where the accident occurred, the manufacturer of a defective product, or a healthcare provider who failed to provide adequate care.
Once the surviving family members have determined who is legally responsible for the death, they must file a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court. The lawsuit must allege that the defendant's negligence or wrongful act caused the death of the deceased person. The lawsuit must also specify the damages that the surviving family members are seeking, such as funeral expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
In order to file a wrongful death lawsuit, the surviving family members must meet certain requirements. These requirements vary from state to state, but they typically include the following:
