In the United States, wrongful death laws are rather straight forward. Specific state laws vary, but they all have more in common that not.
Generally, a wrongful death occurs when the defendant causes the death of the victim, or the defendant is negligent in some manner that directly cause the death of the victim. Monetary damages to the victims family or estate are the normal result.
Medical errors and vehicle accidents area major common causes of wrongful death lawsuits.
