The last thing you want to think about when someone close to you, especially a child, dies is a possible wrongful death lawsuit. It's much more likely that you are in deep mourning or shock. Not only are you depressed, but at the same time, you must arrange a funeral.
Katherine Jackson has a brought a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of her son's estate against the concert promoter AEG Live. The trial is now in its sixth week.
She claims that AEG negligently handled her son's medical care by hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who played a significant role in Michael's death from a Propofol overdose. He was convicted of causing the pop star's death.
The lawsuit states that AEG president Randy Phillips supervised Murray's treatment of Jackson in the weeks before his death - making the company liable for damages. AEG will defend itself in the lawsuit by arguing that Jackson was responsible for his own death.
