A wrongful death occurs when the untimely passing of an individual is caused due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another. The liability for wrongful death may be attributed to a single person, group of people, a business establishment, a medical facility, or an organization.
A wrongful death civil litigation claim may be brought regardless if criminal charges are filed or not.
