Wrongful death is a common law claim against a person, entity, or company who can be held liable for a death. As a civil suit, the standard of proof is typically “preponderance of evidence” as opposed to “clear and convincing” or “beyond a reasonable doubt.” For this reason, it is often easier for a family seeking retribution for the death of a family member through tort rather than criminal prosecution. However, these two actions are not mutually exclusive and a person can be prosecuted criminally and sued civilly.
