A "wrongful death" is a form of death that occurs when someone dies as a result of the negligence or illegal activity of another person. A wrongful death claim or a lawsuit is a sort of civil action that is brought by the decedent's surviving family members against the person or entity that caused the decedent's death. It would have been quite similar to bringing a personal injury claim if the victim had lived.

It's challenging to understand the pain and incomprehensibility of losing a loved one on your own. On the other hand, in some situations, it may also put pressure on a person's financial status. If you are a survivor, you could discover that it is too much to try to support your family, pay your bills, and grieve a loved one's passing all at once.
