Wrongful death is a death that occurs because of the misconduct of another person or entity. The situation can involve anything from an intentional reckless act to one of gross negligence. By law, survivors of the deceased are entitled to receive compensation for a wrongful death. This is very similar to someone being compensated for an injury caused by some sort of wrongdoing. Laws governing who is entitled to recover wrongful death damages vary by state. In Georgia, this list of beneficiaries includes a spouse and young children. In addition, the estate of the deceased is normally allowed a recovery for certain elements of damage.
