Wrongful death is defined as a loss of life due to the negligence of others. Like most other civil cases, these lawsuits must be filed in court within a prescribed period of time. Courts impose deadlines called statutes of limitations on lawsuits because as time passes, critical evidence may be destroyed or misplaced and witnesses may be unavailable or have forgotten what they saw.
