A wrongful death claim arises from another party’s negligence or intentional act, just like a personal injury claim. However, in a wrongful death claim, the decedent isn’t here to file a personal injury claim. As such, the law allows for a personal representative to file a wrongful death claim in their absence seeking compensation for the damages resulting from their death.
