A death caused by a negligent, careless, intentional of reckless act of another person or corporation is considered a wrongful death. In most states, if the death of a relative or spouse was caused by the wrongful act of another, surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party or parties.


The laws regarding wrongful death cases are complex and include many facets of law.  It is vital for surviving family members to seek the advice of experienced wrongful death lawyers to protect their rights and those of their loved ones.
In Alabama, you are entitled to recover punitive damages, an amount that justifiably punishes the other party for any wrongdoing associated with the wrongful death.

Wrongful death is a civil action that can be pursued when someone dies and it is another person's fault. If you believe that a family member died wrongfully as a result of negligence or wantonness of another, you should contact a wrongful death attorney to learn more about your options.
