Bobbi Brown Estate Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

By David Boehrer | Posted on October 12, 2015

The only child of the iconic singer Whitney Houston passed away in late July – though why and how this once vivacious 22 year old died is being questioned. The circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death are confounded by the suspicion of drug use and abuse from her supposed husband Nick Gordon (who, for a time, shared a home and grew up with Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown).

The only thing which is clear is that she was found face down in a bath tub by another individual who was sharing the townhome with Brown and Gordon. The Bobbi Kristina Brown estate, however, believes that they have enough proof to prove that Gordon was accountable for her death and have since filed a wrongful death lawsuit against him.

Wrongful Death Claims Explained

A wrongful death claim may be filed by certain individuals should one or more people believe that a person has passed away at the legal fault of another. At the David Boehrer law Firm, we have pursued wrongful death claims that have ranged from simple car accidents to complex medical malpractice cases, and from negligence to intentional actions.

Who Can File for Wrongful Death

Depending on the state in which you live, those who can file for wrongful death may be wide or they may be limiting. In every state, those who are immediate family members (such as spouses and children) are able to file and recover under wrongful death.

Other individuals who may be able to file for wrongful death include:

  • Life partners
  • Financial dependents
  • Distant family members
  • Those immediately affected financially by the death

For those who may have lost a child in utero, some states allow parents to also claim wrongful death for the death of their unborn baby.

Why Seek Legal Assistance for a Wrongful Death Claim

Wrongful death claims are rarely straightforward nor are they easy for family members to handle. At a time when family members are already under emotional duress, it is important to have the guidance of a proven personal injury attorney at your side to ensure that you and all dependents receive the compensation you deserve for the untimely loss of a loved one.

At the David Boehrer Law Firm, we have experienced personal loss, and know that nothing can replace a friend or family member who has passed away. But holding those who are at fault accountable will make a difference.
