    Law: paid after dead people

    Compensation is the money paid for injury. If the injured man would get killed, by accident or on purpose, what would be the name of the money which should be paid?
    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    Hi
    I found blood money, it is "the money paid for murdering somebody" and "the money that is paid to the family of someone who has been murdered".
    Good luck

    Re: Law: paid after dead people

    In our legal system, it's still "compensation" paid to the family, which would arise from a civil (not criminal) liability trial.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Law: paid after dead people

    And there is no difference between the terms for deliberate or accidental murdering?

    Manslaughter is unintended murder.

    I came across it in some vocabulary books that I can't remember now. I had heard it before.
    These are some useful books regarding vocabulary:
    Collocation Dictionary
    Vocabulary organizer
    Keywords for fluency
    Vocabulary in use
    Oxford word finder
    Lexicon Dictionay
    Good luck

    In our legal system "murder" requires an intention to do so. There is no "accidental" murder.

    You can have death occur from your negligence, and if your negligence is high enough, it can rise to the level of manslaughter. If you drink and drive, a reasonable person should know you have a great risk of causing injury. If you kill someone in a drunk driving accident, you will probably be charged with vehicular manslaughter. But you won't be charged with first-degree murder.

    But again, this is a criminal charge. Your insurance will settle with the family of the person you killed.

    And if it was completely accidental (a child ran into the street from between two parked cars in front of a car being driven in a careful manner), it may be a tragedy, but there won't be any compensation paid to the child's family because there was no fault on the part of the driver. No criminal charges. No civil suits.
