What is the definition of a wrongful death case?

Generally, a wrongful death claim has to do with an action that may be brought by certain family members of a person whose death was caused by someone else’s wrongful conduct. The wrongful act that led to the death may have been negligent, intentional or reckless. In cases where a dangerous product caused the death, it might not be necessary to show unlawful conduct in order to receive compensation. This is known as strict liability.
