Death in itself is tragic and hits a family hard. When a death is premature and caused by wrongful actions (when a loved one dies as a result of negligence), survivors or the estate can choose to bring a lawsuit.
In Arizona, surviving spouses, children, and parents can bring a lawsuit. A claim may even be brought on behalf of the estate if there are no living heirs. There are legal and strategic reasons to bring a wrongful death claim under either of these statutory claims.
Survivors that have a legal claim are entitled to the loss of love, companionship and the relationship with the loved one that did not survive. Any person or entity that has negligently caused or contributed to causing a death can be sued and held responsible.
