For example, if a father is killed by the negligence of a truck driver on the highway, the wife and children can bring the civil actions. If both parents are killed the lawsuit and right of recovery belongs to the children.
This is commonly referred to as a wrongful death civil action. The purpose of the law is to compensate the family or remaining persons in the deceased person’s life for the injuries that deceased person himself or herself would have been able to recover were he or she alive.
