Wrongful Death in Utah
In Utah, wrongful death is defined as a death that occurs as a result of another person’s or entity’s wrongful act, neglect, or recklessness, and where if the deceased had survived, they would have been entitled to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible parties. A wrongful death typically occurs as a result of an intentional act of wrongdoing or a catastrophic accident, such as a motor vehicle accident, railroad or airplane disaster, defective product, or medical malpractice.
Unlike a personal injury claim, a wrongful death claim must be brought by the deceased person’s heirs, legal guardian, or the personal representative of their estate. Typical damages recoverable in wrongful death cases include medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost earning capacity, as well as the surviving heirs’ emotional suffering, loss of companionship and guidance, and funeral and burial expenses, just to name a few.
