What Is Wrongful Death?

Many people have the question: “what is wrongful death?” In general, any wrongful act by another person or corporation that caused someone’s death could potentially lead to a meritorious wrongful death claim.

Some Examples of Wrongful Death Cases

Some common types of cases that are often involved in wrongful death lawsuits are:

Sometimes another person or corporation might be liable for the death of another person, even if it seems like the death was an unavoidable accident or tragedy.

A Specific Example of Wrongful Death Lawsuits

For example, if someone died while operating a dirt bike (meaning they seemingly caused their own death), there might be a possibility that the dirt bike was poorly constructed, or did not have sufficient warnings, or the owner of the race track did not give sufficient instructions. In sum, the general idea is that unless someone died of clearly natural causes, you really might want to speak with a Florida wrongful death lawyer to determine if there might be a responsible person or corporation.

To give another example, let’s say a developer built a restaurant with a deck that did not comply with the building code. And then during happy hour a large group of people were on the deck when it collapsed, killing numerous people. The contractor and potentially the restaurant could be liable for causing those deaths.
