Well, as you may expect, it is a death caused by a wrongful act caused by the negligence of someone, perhaps in a car wreck. A wrongful death case has to be filed by the official representative of the estate of the deceased, usually the administrator or the executor of the estate.
Damages, in such cases, are based on income that was provided for family members. In addition, there are damages for solace; the personal loss by close family members of the companionship, comfort and guidance of the deceased. For more detail, give our firm a call.
