A wrongful death lawsuit may be filed to recover damages from those responsible for the death of an individual when the driver or operator of a truck, bus, train, or other vehicle caused an accident which resulted in the death, when the carelessness of individuals operating heavy equipment caused the death when the act or omission of others or of an organization results in an oil & gas industry related accidental death, when the mistake of a medical professional or other care provider results in death, and under many other circumstances where a death is caused by a person or organization acting negligently or, in rare cases, intentionally.

The purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit is to compensate family members for their financial and emotional losses. Certain family members of the deceased can recover for the pain and suffering of the deceased immediately after the accident, lost wages and other income, their own mental anguish resulting from the death, the medical expenses of the deceased, funeral and burial expenses, and the loss of the love, companionship, and support of the deceased individual.
