Defining Wrongful Death in Michigan

Some accidents only involve property damage, while others involve personal injury. Sometimes the injuries are minor, such as bruises sustained in a car accident . Sometimes they are catastrophic, such as a spinal cord injury. Accidents, however, can still have worse results: The death of a victim. When a person is killed in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, it is referred to as wrongful death. In situations such as this, it may be possible for the family of the victim to receive compensation for their loss with the help of a Farmington Hills wrongful death lawyer.

Who can Sue for Another Person's Wrongful Death?

There are only a few groups of people who are able to recover damages because of someone else's death. Immediate families such as children and spouses, or parents of unmarried children may always recover damages for wrongful death. For other cases, however, laws vary from state to state as to who can recover. Other individuals who could have a chance at receiving compensation include life partners, financial dependents, distant family members, or putative spouses. A putative spouse is someone who believed that they were married to the victim before they died; even if it wasn't necessarily a lawful marriage.

In addition, any person who financially suffers from the death of their loved one may be awarded money, even if they were not related. Sometimes, even the parents of a deceased fetus can file a lawsuit for wrongful death, yet in most states, the child had to be alive for parents to recover.
