WHAT IS WRONGFUL DEATH?
A death is “wrongful” under the definition of the law if it was caused entirely or partially by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional wrongdoing of a third party. If someone passes away and the death is considered wrongful, then the person’s loved ones might have a chance to seek justice and compensation by filing a wrongful death claim.
One way to think about a wrongful death case is to consider it like a personal injury claim. If the situation would have allowed a personal injury claim had the victim survived, then it likely allows for a wrongful death claim because they did not.
WHAT ARE SOME COMMON CAUSES OF WRONGFUL DEATH?
WHO CAN FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM IN TUCSON?
In Arizona, only the deceased person’s spouse, child, or parent can file a wrongful death claim. If none of those parties want to begin one, then the executor or personal representative of the deceased person’s estate can get the right to file.
WHAT COMPENSATION CAN I RECOVER IN A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM?
In Arizona, a wrongful death lawsuit is used to secure compensation for the losses experienced by the deceased person’s family member. The losses can be related to economic losses and non-economic, based on what the family members have suffered.
Wrongful death claims can seek compensation for:
- Medical treatment costs
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of guidance
- Emotional trauma
WHAT IS A SURVIVAL ACTION?
A survival action is technically separate from a wrongful death claim in Arizona. Survival actions are used to seek compensation based on the deceased person’s financial losses. For example, a survival action can demand compensation for any medical costs incurred by the deceased person’s estate, as well as the value of income that they would have likely earned in life had the fatal accident never occurred.
