A death caused by a negligent, careless, intentional, or reckless act of another person or corporation is considered a wrongful death. In Tennessee, if the death of a relative or spouse was caused by the wrongful act of another, the surviving family member can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party or parties. In order to file a wrongful death claim, you must be able to prove that you will experience severe future emotional or financial hardship because of the death. There are certain elements that are required for a wrongful death case. They include one, the death of the person, two, that the death was caused by the negligence of another, three, that there are surviving family members who are monetarily or emotionally suffering due to the death, and four, there must be a personal representative appointed to bring the suit on behalf of the decedent’s estate.
