What is meant by the term wrongful death?

In Missouri and Kansas, a “wrongful death” is a death that occurs due to the negligence or misconduct of an individual, company or entity. Causes of wrongful death include medical malpractice, prescription mistakes, drunk driving accidents, day care deaths, on-the-job deaths – just about any death that could have been avoided had the responsible person not behaved negligently. A wrongful death lawsuit claims that the victim died because of negligence and that his surviving family is entitled to monetary compensation for their losses.
