A wrongful death happens when someone passes away as a result of the carelessness, recklessness, negligence, or intentional conduct of another person or entity. Many wrongful death cases require swift action. If complete financial recovery is to be achieved, safeguarding evidence and locating defendants are frequently crucial.

Both wrongful death and personal injury claims are based on negligence, and they share many similarities. However, there are some primary differences. The most evident distinction between personal injury claims and wrongful death claims is that personal injury claims only involve an injury to the party. Wrongful death claims involve the death of the party.
