If you have experienced the unexpected loss of a loved one due to the negligence of another person or as a result of a dangerous working environment or defective product, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover financial compensation. While a lawsuit may not return the life of the victim, it can bring comfort to grieving family members and dependents, with the knowledge that those liable for the incident are being held accountable for their actions.
