What is wrongful death?

The law firm of Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. has handled literally hundreds of wrongful death cases. A wrongful death case, despite the title, does not relate to the claim of the person who died. Instead, a wrongful death case is a claim made on behalf of close family members who are permitted to make a claim that the deceased individual was "wrongfully" killed as a result of the carelessness of another. That "wrongful death" has caused damages such as grief, loss of support (financial, emotional and psychological), and costs such as funeral and burial bills. Each of the local states have different laws and rules relating to the filing and prosecution of a wrongful death claim. It is absolutely essential if you believe that a close family member was wrongfully killed and taken from you that you interview and hire lawyers experienced in the handling of wrongful death cases.
