What is wrongful death?

Wrongful death is a legal term used when an individual's death is a direct result of the negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions of another party. To establish a wrongful death claim, the following elements must typically be present:

  • Negligence or Wrongful Act: It must be proven that the death resulted from the defendant's negligence or wrongful act. This could involve situations such as car accidents caused by a distracted driver or medical malpractice due to a healthcare provider's negligence.
  • Causation: There must be a direct causal link between the defendant's actions and the victim's death. In other words, it must be evident that the defendant's actions directly led to the loss of life.
  • Surviving Beneficiaries: Wrongful death claims are typically brought on behalf of surviving family members or beneficiaries of the deceased. These beneficiaries include spouses, children, and parents, depending on the circumstances.

Who is entitled to compensation?

In cases involving wrongful death, a range of compensation options become available to various parties who have been profoundly affected by the loss of their loved one. These persons include:

Surviving Spouse

  • The surviving spouse is eligible to seek compensation for the profound void left by the absence of their partner, encompassing the loss of companionship, shared experiences, and the emotional connection they cherished.
  • Grief often brings about severe emotional distress, and compensation may be sought to alleviate the emotional pain and suffering endured by the surviving spouse.
  • Many spouses rely on the deceased for financial support, and compensation can help bridge the financial gap created by the loss, ensuring the surviving spouse's financial stability.


  • Minor children of the deceased may be entitled to compensation for the loss of valuable parental guidance and nurturing that is essential for their emotional and psychological development.
  • Compensation can also cover the economic support that children relied on from their deceased parent, such as education, healthcare, and daily living expenses.
  • The emotional bond between children and parents is invaluable, and compensation may be awarded for the loss of this irreplaceable companionship.


  • In certain situations, parents who have tragically lost their child may seek compensation to address the profound emotional and psychological toll this loss has taken on them. This compensation can help them access therapy or support services to cope with their grief.
