Can a judgment obtained as a result of a wrongful death be discharged in bankruptcy?

• A: Possibly. The bankruptcy laws permit the discharge of negligence damages. A person could be released from having to pay a judgment for accidently causing a death. But some bankruptcy courts may make damages resulting from “recklessness” or gross negligence non-dischargeable. Debts caused by drunk driving can’t be discharged in bankruptcy.
