What is the difference between murder and wrongful death?

Posted in and tagged by NYC Injury Attorney

Murder is just one of many types of wrongful death. You have the right to sue someone for civil damages if he or she killed your loved one. You can also sue someone whose act of negligence resulted in a wrongful death. Therefore, wrongful death can involve an intentional act, but it can also involve an act of recklessness or carelessness.
