Most wrongful death suits involve vehicular accidents with vehicles such as cars, ATVs, motorcycles, tractor trailers, and snowmobiles. Other wrongful death claims may result from public transportation (trains, planes, buses, boats, and watercraft), defective products, medical malpractice, and pharmaceutical liability.

Negligence is a very common factor in wrongful death suits. Negligence generally means another individual failed to act in a reasonable way, resulting in the injury or death of another. Inattention, thoughtlessness, inadvertence, and just plain mistakes are all examples of negligence.

Financial damages are awarded when negligence has been legally proven. Besides establishing negligence, the life expectancy of the deceased and survivor is presented in order to establish the loss of future earnings. The relationship of the survivor and the deceased must also be established before a damage award can be made. A successful award of damages must also demonstrate the emotional loss suffered by a survivor. Picking a fair-minded and objective jury is a critical element in the success of any case. Choosing a jury and completing the case takes years of experience and skill.
