A wrongful death may be caused by the intentional or negligent act of another person. Medical malpractice, accidents, and other acts of negligence give rise to wrongful death claims. The heirs, survivors, or dependants of the deceased can file a lawsuit for wrongful death and may be entitled to claim compensatory damages for loss of income of the deceased, any medical and funeral expenses incurred as well as loss of society, companionship, love or services of that person, and other damages allowed by law.
