What Qualifies as a Wrongful Death?

Under Tennessee law, a wrongful death occurs when someone dies as a result of another person’s wrongful act or omission. You can also file a claim if your loved one died as a result of injuries received by another person, or if he or she was the victim of homicide.

If your loved one could have filed a personal injury lawsuit if he or she lived, his or her case is likely eligible for a wrongful death claim. Speaking to a Mount Juliet wrongful death attorney can help you identify whether you qualify for a claim.

At The Law Offices of Christopher Eads, PLLC, we represent wrongful death cases involving a wide range of accidents and acts of violence, including the following.
