Wrongful Death Caused by Dog Bites

Wrongful death is legally defined as such, when a person loses his or her life as the result of a willful or negligent action undertaken by another party. Wrongful death lawsuits vary state to state and they each determine what is considered wrongful death.

A spouse, the victim’s children, next of kin, or parents of the victim are able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Statistics show that an estimated 35 people are killed annually as a result of a dog attack or dog bite. Compensation can be granted for a number of reasons including income lost, covering the cost of the funeral, emotional grief, and the pain and suffering the family endures watching their family member who was attacked slowly deteriorate until the time they finally pass.
