Proving Negligence in a Wrongful Death Case
When we lose a loved one, particularly if the death was caused by a sudden accident or incident, the personal loss is devastating. We expected that loved one to be with us for many years to come, yet life is suddenly brought to an unexpected and tragic end. While we know that nothing can be said or done to return our loved one to us, if he or she died as a result of the negligence, neglect or illegal conduct of another, immediate family members may have the right to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. Filing a wrongful death claim can allow you to pay for any medical expenses prior to death, funeral and burial costs, loss of income and companionship, pain & suffering and other damages.
To file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit, one must first prove that the responsible party's acts or omissions are what caused your loved one's injuries and ultimate death. In cases in which negligence or wrongful conduct can be established as causing death, and is supported by proof, the case has merit and should be filed as early as possible to avoid passing the statute of limitations.
