When misconduct or carelessness by a company or an individual
causes the death of a person it is called a "wrongful
death." A wrongful death can result from another's
negligence on the raod, a defective product, an unsafe
worksite, or medical carelessness, amongst other things.
The law provides for compensation of family members
of the deceased when a wrongful death occurs. The laws
of each state differ as to those individuals who are
entitled to compensation for a wrongful death. When
the deceased is an adult the list of beneficiaries typically
include the spouse and children. Some states recognize
the rights of relatives other than the immediate family
if they were dependent upon the deceased for support
