When an individual or company’s negligence leads to death of a person, that person’s family is allowed to recover damages for their loss. At Brenner Law, we understand that while no money can bring their loved one back, holding the person or business accountable for their negligent actions is essential.
A wrongful death occurs when negligent, reckless or deliberate behavior results in a fatality. Often, negligence means the failure of a person to behave how a reasonably prudent individual or entity would have acted under similar circumstances. When that failure results in a death, the surviving family members have a legal right to bring a claim called a wrongful death claim.
