A wrongful death lawsuit is a lawsuit where family members have sued on behalf of somebody who has died because of the wrongful conduct of another person, another entity. It’s the type of lawsuit that looks at a person’s life and loss of life. The jury, at some point, would calculate the amount of damages that the deceased had suffered, but also that the family suffered for the loss of that person.
If it was a breadwinner of the family, there would be a claim for future wage loss, and future earnings. If the person suffered a lot of medical expenses because of the wrongful conduct of somebody else, the family would seek the recovery or get reimbursed for those medical expenses.
