The misconduct need not be, and often is not the result of malice or an intentional act, but rather negligence or carelessness. There are a number of wrongful death situations, including work-related accidents, medical mistakes or malpractice, automobile and plane accidents or deaths related to dangerous pharmaceuticals.

Thankfully there are laws in place to protect those family members left behind. Laws to ensure that surviving husbands, wives, children, parents, brothers and sisters can rely in there time of need.
