When a third party is responsible for the death of another person, they can be held liable under common law jurisdiction. Victims of serious personal injuries, such as brain or burn injuries, have an advantage that fatality victims do not: the ability to file a personal injury claim on their own behalf.
When a person loses their life as a result of the negligent or reckless behaviors of another, they are just as entitled to monetary compensation and legal address as any other personal injury victim. Unfortunately, they are in no way able to fight against the wrongs that led to their fatality. Therefore, a wrongful death claim can be made by family members who have lost a loved one due to the immoral or unlawful behaviors of someone else.
A family can seek retribution against the person who killed their loved one by bringing a wrongful death claim case against them. Even if the personal at fault is already being persecuted in the criminal courts for murder, manslaughter, or homicide, there is still room for a civil lawsuit involving a wrongful death claim. In fact, when fatality results from a company rather than an individual, the only recourse that can be taken is to file wrongful death.
