A wrongful death claim arises when someone causes the death of another person by an act of willful, reckless, or negligent misconduct. Family members or close relatives of the deceased can bring a cause of action for wrongful death against the at-fault party, holding him or her liable for the consequences of his or her conduct.
Accidents can arise in a variety of contexts, including:
A young man was killed by a drunk driver who went left-of-center, causing several deaths in Cuyahoga Falls, Summit County, Ohio. A wrongful death settlement was obtained for the mother and sister of the young man. The settlement was paid by a homeowner’s insurance carrier insuring the parents who had permitted a high school graduation party to take place at their home where the under-aged drinking occurred.
