What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death claim is a claim that is made because of a person being killed because of the fault of someone else. There are elevator technicians who unfortunately will die because of the negligence of other people, even when that individual was performing the job properly at the time of his or her death.
If an elevator technician dies because of the negligence or general misconduct of another person, such as a building owner, building operator or building maintenance department, then the family of the elevator technician may make a claim for a wrongful death in a court of law.
What Does Suing for Wrongful Death Mean?
When you sue for wrongful death, you are bringing an action at law to recover compensation from the at-fault parties for the wrongful death of a loved one.
