When a person dies due to the negligent behavior of another person or entity (for medical malpractice, personal injury, premises liability, or product liability, for example), the family of the victim can bring a suit for wrongful death. If the person who died was the breadwinner of the family, the loss is both financial and emotional. Often times, a family will drown in a sea of medical bills or other financial obligations, while dealing with a significant loss of income and the painful void caused by the loss of a loved one. The family or dependents of a wrongful death victim can file a suit to recover past financial losses and anticipated future deprivations brought on by the loss of the family breadwinner.
