When a person is killed or dies due to another person’s misconduct or negligence, as well as, murder, the surviving children or any other member of the deceased’s family may decide to take legal action for the “wrongful death.” Several wrongful death charges follow in the stir of the legal trials, using the evidence acquired by the victim’s family and law firm. Regardless, any person who is found accountable for wrongful death might be convicted of a crime linked with that death.
A wrongful death may result from some circumstances such as:
- Medical practice that may result in death
- Airplane or automobile accident
- Occupational exposure to harmful substance or hazardous condition
- Death that may arise in a supervised activity
- Criminal behavior
- Damages in a wrongful death charge
Many law offers that the injury awarded for a wrongful death should be fair and honest. Anyone involved in wrongful death is charged accordingly.
