How Do I File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit? More Inside
Many individuals are fatalistic and believe in nebulous concepts such as destiny. Fortunately, the law doesn’t work this way, and it is possible to hold another individual or a corporation responsible for the death of a loved one. Filing a wrongful death claim will give you closure as well as the resources you need to make your life whole again. It is important to note that negligence plays a role in almost all deaths that are termed accidental, and it is due to someone or an entity not doing what they were supposed to do in order to keep citizens safe.

You may be tempted to handle your wrongful death claim on your own, without the help attorney. This is just about the worst thing you can do because there are so many sensitive moving parts to lawsuits that you may overlook a lot of things and even be convinced to settle for a paltry amount by the insurance company, when if you had hired an attorney, you would have recovered maximum compensation, not have to deal with the headaches of collecting evidence, calling forth experts and witnesses, and consolidating all these moving parts to form a compelling and coherent legal argument.
In order to file a wrongful death claim, the following must be present:
- There must have existed what’s legally called duty of care
- The negligent party breached this duty of care
- This breach of duty of care was the main cause of the deceased’s injury
- You and your loved one suffered damages as a direct consequence of this breach
Here are the individuals that can file a wrongful death lawsuit:
- The decedent’s spouse
- The decedent’s children
- The decedent’s domestic partner
- An individual who has a legal right to oversee the decedent’s property
