The definition of wrongful death can differ from state to state. Knowing whether you have a claim may take a review from a lawyer. Arizona Law Revised Statute 12-611 defines wrongful death as the death of a victim by the neglect, default, or wrongful act of another person, such that the party injured would have had grounds for an action to recover monetary damages had death not ensued. In other words, if your deceased loved one would have had grounds for a personal injury claim had he or she survived the accident, your family members would most likely have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit now.
