What Are The Proceedings Of A Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death claim is when relatives or immediate family of the deceased place a claim against an individual or company who they believe to be responsible for the tragedy. If the accident that lead to death was not the fault of the individual but that of another, the person at fault is liable to compensate the deceased’s loved ones.
The responsible party should provide equitable compensation for damages such as:
- Medical fees
- Loss of future earnings
- Funeral and burial expenses
In addition to the above compensation, there are other non-economic expenses that the party could be liable for.
These can include:
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Life being less enjoyable
- Punitive damages
- Other non-economic damages

Who Can Make a Wrongful Death Claim?
There are two types of beneficiaries who can claim for wrongful death. These include the first tier and second tier. The first tier includes the deceased’s immediate family members, such as husband, wife, domestic partner, and children. Second tier beneficiaries include parents and/or siblings.
Second tier beneficiaries have the right to claim wrongful death if there are no first-tier beneficiaries. For second-tier beneficiaries to claim wrongful death, they must have been dependent on that person before the accident occurred. If not, the second tier beneficiaries will not be able to receive compensation.
