What is wrongful death?

A wrongful death occurs when a person dies due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or party. In such a case, it must be proved that the death of the victim could have been prevented if the party in question had conducted themselves accordingly and had provided the correct level of treatment or service that was required. Essentially, had the named liable party not been negligent in their duties, the deceased would still be alive. In many wrongful death cases, the liable party is a medical practitioner who did not detect or treat an illness or injury due to being remiss in their duties, such as not running the appropriate tests based on the concerns of the patient.
