A wrongful death claim can be brought by the decedent’s next of kin, typically a spouse or children, and happens when a motor-vehicle accident or other forms of negligent behaviors are the cause of the victim's untimely death. An example of this is a DUI defendant driver causing the death of another driver in a car crash. These cases require an aggressive and competent attorney to fight for your rights as well as punitive damage recovery. It is also equally as important to have an attorney who has compassion for human life and the level of grief the surviving family members who remain must face.
