An overview of Indiana's wrongful death laws

A wrongful death may occur when a person dies due to the actions of another person. Wrongful deaths can be the result of negligence, recklessness, criminal conduct and other actions. In Indiana, certain laws dictate just who may pursue wrongful death damages, when they must do so and what losses they may not be able to seek through their lawsuits.

You don't have to face a wrongful death case alone

The loss of a loved one can be an emotionally devastating event. Family and friends must carry on without their loved one. Particularly for families, it can also be a financially devastating event. Funeral expenses and loss of income can be problematic. If the death in question happened because of the wrong actions of another party, there may be a way to hold that party accountable for their actions.
