Do you have a wrongful death claim?
Wrongful death is caused by the negligence of some other person or entity and can be a result of medical malpractice, exposure to toxic substances, an automobile accident, a boating accident, or from defective drugs.
These claims must be brought by the personal representative of the estate and only certain claimants (or “distributees”) can recover damages. These distributees usually encompass a spouse, children and/or parents of the deceased.
