What needs to be proved in a wrongful death claim?

The death of a family member can be a sad time for the other surviving family members, but when the death was caused by some unforeseen tragedy and the family member who died was relatively young, the whole situation can be heartbreaking. Car accidents, for example, take the lives of thousands of young people in Indiana and throughout the country each year. When the death of a family member was due to the negligence or recklessness of another party, a wrongful death claim may be possible, which is intended to recover compensation to help the surviving family members cope with the financial impact of the sudden loss.
