Families are always grief-stricken when the loss of a loved one occurs, but the tragedy of a beloved family member or friend dying before their time hurts those left behind that much more, especially if that death was preventable and the negligence of another party contributed to that untimely loss of life. Sadly, negligence resulting in premature death happens too often, sometimes even with those who are entrusted with the care and health of our family members, such as nursing home staff members. A wrongful death is one in which the death could have been prevented if not for the negligence of the liable party. If you believe your loved one’s death was wrongful and want to seek justice and closure via the legal system, contact a wrongful death lawyer to discuss your legal options in the civil courts.
Legally, a death may be considered wrongful if it could have been prevented through some reasonable action on the part of another party, but that other party behaved in a negligent manner (either through actions or failures to act) and this negligence gave rise to the untimely death of the deceased party. The surviving family members of the deceased then have the right to sue the liable party for damages related to the loss of their loved one.
