Proving negligence in a wrongful death lawsuit
Put simply, a wrongful death lawsuit is basically a personal injury lawsuit in which the victim has died, and the plaintiff is a family member who has suffered as a result. Just like a personal injury case, we seek compensation for medical bills, missed paychecks, and the pain and suffering of the accident victim. In addition to this, we can also seek a sum to cover funeral expenses, any loss of value to the family estate, and loss of consortium. To win a wrongful death case, your wrongful death lawyer must prove:
- The liable party owed the victim a duty of care
- This duty was breached, resulting in an accident
- The decedent died as a result of this accident
- The plaintiff suffered hardships because of the victim’s death
