Information Provided by a Mississippi Personal Injury Attorney
Wrongful death is a type of personal injury that occurs when an individual is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another person or corporation. The purpose of wrongful death laws are to compensate the survivors of a victim of wrongful death. There are several different kinds of damages that survivors of a wrongful death victim may be able to recover in a wrongful death claim. After first establishing that a wrongful death did occur, survivors can claim compensation for medical and funeral expenses, as well as the loss of love and companionship. Punitive damages may also be awarded in cases of serious or malicious wrongdoing to punish the wrongdoer.
