What is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is a legal term used to describe instances in which an individual
is killed as a result of another person, corporation, or entity’s
negligent, careless, reckless, or intentional actions. There are many
different types of situations where this might occur.
Some common examples of wrongful death claims include those in which individuals
are killed due to:
- Car or truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Aviation accidents
- Defective products
- Dangerous drugs
- Faulty medical devices
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Nursing home abuse
- Criminal acts
At Hare Wynn, our experienced wrongful death lawyers have handled cases
involving virtually every type of wrongful death claim. We understand
how the system works and can offer you the sound legal counsel and steadfast
assistance you need.
What Damages Are Recoverable in Wrongful Death Claims?
Laws governing wrongful death claims vary from state to state. In some
regions, it is possible to pursue compensatory damages to assist with
unanticipated losses associated with wrongful death, including funeral
costs, loss of support, loss of income, and more. In the state of Alabama,
where one of our offices is located, wrongful death claims fall under
the Alabama Wrongful Death Act, which is unique and unlike wrongful death
statutes in other states. Under this law, recoverable damages in wrongful
death claims are entirely punitive, not compensatory. The purpose of this
is to hold responsible parties accountable for their negligence and to
deter others from similar actions that could also lead to wrongful death.
Under Alabama law, the amount of recoverable damages is typically determined
by the extent of wrongdoing.
