Commonly Asked Questions

What is wrongful death?

Wrongful death refers to a situation where a person dies due to the negligent or intentional actions of another party. It can occur in various situations such as car accidents, medical malpractice, or workplace accidents.

How can I prove wrongful death?

To prove wrongful death, you need to establish four key elements: duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. You must show that the responsible party had a legal duty to act reasonably, failed to fulfill that duty, and as a result, caused the death of your loved one, leading to damages for the surviving family members.

Do I need an attorney for a wrongful death case?

While it is not legally required to have an attorney for a wrongful death case, it is highly recommended. An experienced wrongful death attorney can navigate the complex legal process, gather evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, and fight for your rights in court. They can help you seek the maximum compensation you deserve for your loss.
