Death due to the negligence of another individual actions is grounds for filing a claim of wrongful death claim.
In the state of NH, reckless behavior or actions of another individual that results in another person’s death is considered a wrongful death. It is also important to note that claiming wrongful death can also be recognized as a personal injury claim. This is due to the injured party being unable to file their own claim or bring their own case to court.
The deceased person is not able to seek their own justice and therefore, a claim is filed in the estate of the individual who has passed away. Civil claims may also be filed at this time as well. The party filing the deceased person’s claim is typically another loved one or a family member.
