When someone dies through the negligent act of another, a wrongful death claim can result. In this type of case, the personal representative of the estate of a deceased person is authorized to file a lawsuit against those responsible for the person’s death. A wrongful death case can arise from any type of personal injury case including medical malpractice, automobile accidents, construction accidents, airplane accidents and many more.
