    A lawsuit in which the plaintiff is suing the defendant and claiming that the defendant is somehow responsible for the death of the plaintiff's spouse/child/mother/father/relative, etc. So, its like asking for a monetary settlement for causing the death of a person wrongfully, such as in a traffic accident or work related incident.

    It is a civil suit in which the plaintiff is suing the defendant for monetary damages. The defendant may be found not guilty for criminal charges, but be found guilty on civil charges, because the verdict does not have to be unanimous.

    A situtation including negligence or where there was no intent to kill or other malice, but a death could have been avoided, if others had acted more thoughtfully and with care.
