The death of a family member loved one or friend is a tragic occurrence.
The occurrence is more tragic when the death came about through a person’s negligence – a wrongful death in legal terms.
The term is also used to denote a civil action in which damages are sought against a party for causing a death, typically when criminal action has failed or is not attempted.
