A wrongful death action is a statutory right to sue given
to the surviving family members of a deceased family member.
In order to bring a wrongful death action, a death must have
been caused by the wrongful, negligent, careless, or
reckless act of a person, company or municipality. The
Wrongful Death Statute was adopted so that the family
members of a deceased can bring the legal action that the
deceased would have brought, had death not ensued. In other
words, if family of the injured party is suing on behalf of
the deceased party. then a wrongful action does not exist
and only the injured party may sue. The Law Office of
