Can You File a Wrongful Death Claim?


From a legal standpoint, a wrongful death claim should meet the following criteria:


• Another person's conduct caused, or contributed to, the death of the loved one

• The other person was negligent or strictly liable for the loved one's death

• The loved one leaves behind surviving beneficiaries or dependents

• Monetary losses have resulted from the loved one's death
