Differences between Wrongful Death and Murder
There are many differences between a wrongful death lawsuit and a murder claim. The biggest difference, in general, is that wrongful death lawsuits are civil actions and murder is a criminal act. In civil lawsuits, the plaintiff is awarded monetary damages. In a criminal action, the defendant may be punished by incarceration.
Who can file for a Wrongful Death lawsuit?
There are a number of parties that may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit, including a spouse, parent, guardian, or a child of the deceased. In some instances, a personal representative of the decedent’s estate may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim. Our attorneys can explain who is best suited to bring a claim.
