A wrongful death
action is a statutory right to sue given to the surviving
family members of a deceased family member. In order to
bring a wrongful death action, a death must have been caused
by the wrongful, negligent, careless, or reckless act of a
person, company or municipality. The Rhode Island Wrongful
Death Statute was adopted so that the family members of a
deceased can bring the legal action that the deceased would
have brought, had death not ensued. In other words, if the
injured party is alive, then a wrongful action does not
exist and only the injured party may sue. The Law Offices of
James P. Howe have successfully represented families in wrongful death lawsuits against corporations,
nursing homes, individuals and municipalities.
