These types of cases can also occur in relation to employment accidents, exposure to environmental hazards, and medical malpractice. The individuals, or “plaintiffs”, that have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim are usually the surviving family members of the deceased. Normally this is the surviving spouse, children, parents, or siblings depending upon the situation.
The claim to be pursued on behalf of the surviving family members is for pecuniary, “money”, damages as a result of the wrongful death.
Typically this is for loss of support experienced by the surviving family member/s.
