It may be devastating to lose a loved member due to someone else’s carelessness. Surviving relatives are sometimes left with emotional wounds as well as severe financial obligations.

Wrongful death lawsuits are distinct in that they do not involve the deceased person’s injuries; instead, they are a separate civil claim filed to recover damages for the suffering caused to the victim’s surviving family as a result of the victim’s death.
