The term "wrongful death" includes the claims of husbands, wives, children, parents, brothers, sisters and financially dependent children [whether or not formally adopted] when negligence, reckless or intentional misconduct has caused the death of a family member. Wrongful death claims include every type of accidental death, no matter the specific cause.
All states authorize surviving family members to be compensated for both economic and non-economic losses, including loss of financial support, love, care, comfort, supervision, guidance, household assistance and general society. Some states also allow surviving family members to be compensated for their personal grief and suffering. Who is entitled to sue and the damages that can be sought vary from state to state and are controlled by written statutes.
