Video Summary

  • Wrongful death claims arise when someone dies due to negligence or misconduct of another person or company.
  • These claims are brought in the civil justice system, not the criminal process, and the remedy is compensation for the death.
  • Specific rules dictate who can bring a wrongful death claim, and they can be complex.
