What is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful Death. Something I have heard of before from some people and from TV shows but I was not actually quite sure what it meant until I looked it up.

I have heard of it before from some people and from TV shows but I was not actually quite sure what it meant until I looked it up.

An individual dies. Why? Another person deliberately or negligently let that happen. This is called wrongful death. To me, sounds quite like murder, but actually not. Wrongful death can be intentional or unintentional.

From my research on Wrongful Death at various encyclopedias,

Wrongful Death is classified under civil law. For all you folks out there who have no clue, there are 2 main types of laws, or at least that is what I think... But anyway, these two exists: Criminal Law and Civil Law.

Criminal Law concerns those stuff that break the laws of the country. Stuff that can get you arrested by the police, like murder, theft, robbery, etc...

Civil Law concerns those stuff that do not break the laws of the country (in a way) but then you can get sued by someone who is discontent with your actions. Wrongful Death belongs in this category, from my research. So for example, an old lady dies because her son just would not let her go for treatment. Why? So that that old lady would not use up her own money. Why? So that the son can inherit more when she... you know. The old lady should not have died at that time. She could have gotten some treatment and lived for at least maybe 10 years. But she died. She died a wrongful death.

People that are committing this wrongful death act are like murderers to me. Especially the intentional ones. Passive murderers.
