Wrongful death is a legal term that refers to a death caused by the fault of another person. A wrongful death lawsuit is one that is brought by a family member because a loved one has died as a result of the negligent behavior or unintentional act of another person. Common causes of wrongful death might be a car accident, medical malpractice or nursing home negligence. UAE has laws that allow a victim’s family or estate to recover compensation when a wrongful death occurs. Those laws are:

A wrongful death lawsuit must be brought by a person who has standing to pursue the case. This personal representative for the deceased may be named in the victim’s will, however, if no one is named, a close family member can petition the probate court to be appointed the personal representative. The lawsuit is then brought on behalf of the victim’s next of kin. In most cases, the next of kin includes the deceased person’s immediate family: the surviving spouse, children, siblings or parents (including adoptive parents and adopted children). If no immediate family survives, a lawsuit may be brought on behalf of a niece or nephew.
