No, a person does not need to be found guilty on a criminal charge for you to file and receive wrongful death compensation. Wrongful death is a civil action, which is a separate type of lawsuit. Criminal charges are not necessary for a civil lawsuit to be filed against the person responsible for the death of a loved one.
