Morgan & Morgan

  • What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

    If your loved one passed away due to the fault of another person or entity, you can file a wrongful death lawsuit. These lawsuits are designed to help surviving family members recover compensation for their losses. This may include lost wages from the deceased, lost companionship, and funeral costs, among other damages.

    Like other states, Michigan has its own rules that govern what constitutes a wrongful death. As a greater Detroit resident, you can bring a claim if your loved one’s passing was caused by “wrongful act, neglect, or fault of another.” 

    Another way of thinking about wrongful death lawsuits: If the deceased could have brought a personal injury case against the defendant if not for their death, it likely is grounds for a wrongful death claim. In this case, the victim’s death prevented them from serving as a plaintiff.

  • What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Deaths?

    Wrongful death claims can involve all types of fatal incidents: car crashes, motorcycle accidents, defective products, surgical errors, and medication errors, among others. As long as the person or entity at fault acted negligently – meaning they failed to act in a manner that a reasonable person would – it is a wrongful death. Individuals, companies, and even government agencies can be legally at fault, depending on the circumstances.
