Wrongful death gives relatives or beneficiaries the right to bring an action against the person, group, or institution responsible for the victim’s death. The laws are different in each state; however, they offer the provision of financial support and benefits to the family members, particularly the widow and orphans.
The laws of each state have statutes which give certain family members a designated time to file a claim or bring an action against the individuals or entities responsible for wrongful death. Prudent and timely investigation are crucial as soon as possible after such a tragic event.
