Wrongful death - Ritchie Reiersen Injury and Immigration AttorneysYou may have heard the term ‘wrongful death‘ before, and like many, been confused about exactly what it means. Here is a very brief explanation.

In the event that an injured victim does not survive an accident caused by the negligence of another, wrongful death has occurred. If you are a surviving family member of a wrongful death victim, you have the legal right to seek compensation for your loss.

There are many circumstances in which wrongful death can occur, including:

  • Medical malpractice that results in death
  • Automobile or airplane accident
  • Occupational exposure to hazardous conditions or substances
  • Criminal behavior
  • Death during a supervised activity
