Relatives (and occasionally other parties) can file a civil suit against individuals and organization for the wrongful death of a person. The deceased, for obvious reasons, cannot file claims on their own behalf, and as such, family members usually file it for them. Wrongful death suits are the only ways to prosecute corporations and other organizations for causing death, because corporations cannot be prosecuted in criminal courts for murder (most corporations are LLCs, or Limited Liability Corporations, which means that individuals within the corporation cannot be held responsible for what the corporation does).
Wrongful Death civil actions can occur in any practice area, whether it is a construction accident or a fatally defective product. Additionally, it is generally easier to seek retribution against a malefactor with a civil suit because the burden of proof for wrongful death is lower than it is for murder.
