If an injured person who ultimately dies due to another’s negligence would have been entitled to file a personal injury claim had they survived, then a wrongful death suit is most likely appropriate for your situation.  

Claims of wrongful death are brought against parties who are responsible for someone’s death through either negligence or malfeasance. These claims provide the deceased’s family or their estate with a tool for bringing a suit against the individual deemed liable for the death.

Losing someone you love to the negligent acts of another party is a singularly distressing experience; one for which the law offers a legal remedy.
