What Does A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Look Like?
Seeking a wrongful death lawsuit requires the consideration of several different factors. The most important objective of these types of lawsuits is to seek damages for the death of the loved one involved. This includes financial compensation for losses such as lost wages from the deceased, funeral costs, lost companionship, and other similar expenses.
Oftentimes, insurance companies will attempt to take advantage of a loved one’s grief to get a quick and cheap settlement. You and your loved ones deserve better than that, and with the assistance of a wrongful death claim attorney, you can be sure that your case will receive full justice. With expert negotiation skills and immense knowledge of the law, your legal representation will act on your behalf in order to achieve the best possible outcome for your claim.
Proving the liability of another party is an integral part of wrongful death lawsuits. This is established within the claim by asserting that the defendant displayed negligence, which in turn caused the untimely death of the victim. Examples of wrongful death negligence can include:
- Medical malpractice
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Birth Injuries
- Criminal actions such as shootings, stabbings, and other violence
- Occupational hazards
- Product defects
- Premises accidents
- Occupational exposure
- Abuse/neglect at nursing homes or assisted living facilities
Given that wrongful death cases are civil action rather than a criminal case, the “burden of proof” is lower. This means that for your lawyer to prove your wrongful death claim successfully, the significance of evidence standards is lower than they would be in a criminal case.
With this in mind, the legal process for wrongful death cases may include methods such as demands, mediation, and settlement of the claim. If the other party fails to agree to a reasonable financial settlement, then the case will likely go to trial in order to recover fair and just compensation. The best way to do so is with a qualified and competent wrongful death settlement attorney.
