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.
A wrongful death claim 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.
