Wrongful Death Law Suits

It is important to understand that wrongful death lawsuits are not lawsuits on behalf of the victim. The Wrongful Death Act provides compensation for the surviving spouse and/or next of kin when a wrongful act causes the death. Wrongful Death cases seek compensation for your pecuniary damages, like grief, sorrow, anguish and mental suffering caused by wrongful acts that kill your loved one.

Survival Act Law Suits. 

Legal actions filed on behalf of the deceased victim fall under Survival Actions.  Generally, Survival law suits seek compensation for the pain, suffering and economic damages that your loved one suffered from the time he/she was injured until the time of death.
