What is the difference between homicide and wrongful death?

A death can be a traumatic event for the loved ones of the deceased person. In Montana, certain relatives may file wrongful death legal claims against the person or party who causes the death of a victim; wrongful death lawsuits are often filed after criminal matters related to the death are resolved. Because criminal charges, like murder and manslaughter, are sometimes alleged against individuals accused of wrongful death, readers may wonder just what the differences are between these claims.
