The loss of a loved one is often one of the most difficult things anyone will ever experience. Under Indiana law, when the death was caused by the wrongful act or omission of another, the family or personal representative of the decedent has the right to bring a claim against the individual who caused the unfortunate death. The law gives you the right to be financially compensated for the damages you and your family have incurred. A wrongful death may be brought about as the result of a car, truck, or motorcycle accident; medical malpractice; product liability; or a construction accident.
