Steps in a wrongful death lawsuit
The steps in a wrongful death lawsuit begin with getting to know you and your legal needs. First, we’re great listeners and empathize with what you’re going through. By understanding you and your situation, we can provide outstanding representation. The steps in a wrongful death suit involve gathering evidence of how the accident occurred and what compensation is appropriate. Then, we provide legal advocacy to secure a fast and complete payment. While most wrongful death lawsuits don’t end up going to trial, carefully building the legal evidence and taking the proper legal steps are crucial. It’s all part of our finely-tuned strategy to maximize your settlement. Ultimately, we make sure you understand each stage in the case.
Some families like to be very hands-on with our legal team, while others are more comfortable with us providing frequent updates about the case. Whatever you prefer, we meet you on your terms as we work to win you the monetary payment you deserve. While it can’t change what happened, bringing a claim can hold others accountable for their actions and ease some of the financial burdens that result from the tragedy.

FAQs about wrongful death claims
What is a Wrongful Death Claim?
A wrongful death claim is a lawsuit for monetary payment. The lawsuit says the victim would not have died if the defendant had not been negligent or reckless. The case looks to assign fault for the accident and requires the defendant to pay the victim’s family fair compensation.
Does a Crime Have to Occur to Have a Wrongful Death Claim?
No, a crime does not have to occur to have a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death is a civil action, which means it is based on simple negligence. Negligence laws are not crimes. They are a separate body of law that holds negligent parties financially responsible for their actions and the harm that results from their negligence.
What Do You Have to Prove to Win a Wrongful Death Claim?
To win a wrongful death claim, you must prove that the defendant didn’t act with an acceptable amount of care. The law compares the defendant’s actions to the care a reasonable and ordinary person should have used in the same situation. The defendant not being careful enough is sufficient to meet the burden to prove a wrongful death claim.
