Wrongful death can be defined as the loss of the life of an individual resulting from the willful or negligent act of another person or persons. Wrongful death can be intentional or unintentional. Plaintiffs who prevail in a wrongful death lawsuit may recover medical and funeral expenses in addition to the amount of economic support they could have received if the decedent had lived and, in some instances, a sum of money to compensate for grief or loss of services or companionship.
