Sometimes, a wrongful death case is not just brought against a single defendant, such as in the case of murder or an auto accident. If the decedent died in the care of an institution, such as a nursing home or even prison, more than one party might be responsible for the death. The people taking direct care of your relative, as well as the institution itself, may be liable for the death of an individual in their care. The only way to know for sure who you should name in your lawsuit is to hire a capable wrongful death lawyer to handle your case.
