It is possible to launch a claim for wrongful death against other parties in addition to the individual who has died away. People who have been negatively affected by an event may bring a wrongful death case on their behalf if the death of the decedent was caused by an injury that could have been prevented by the actions of another person. This is the case if the decedent’s death was caused by an injury that could have been prevented by the actions of another person.

The death of a loved one may bring much more pain and sorrow than any other event or condition in life. More sad and distressing than losing a member of your family or a close friend is learning that your loved one died as a result of the negligence and carelessness of another person.
