What makes a wrongful death claim?
Understanding what constitutes a wrongful death claim is important. While this will often result in criminal charges, a wrongful death case is a separate proceeding. While a criminal charge is brought by the government and could result in jail time, a wrongful death claim is a civil action. If successful, it will result in monetary compensation.
Prevailing in a wrongful death claim without the help of a lawyer can be difficult. From navigating the court system to negotiating with lawyers, this process is best handled by a wrongful death law firm.
