What Qualifies as a Wrongful Death?
All deaths are tragic. However, not all of them qualify as wrongful in the eyes of the law.
A wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the legal fault of another. A wrongful death claim seeks to prove that the negligent — or intentional — behavior of an individual or entity caused an innocent person to lose their life. Talk to our attorneys to learn if your case qualifies.
