A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil suit brought by the survivors against those whose carelessness or misconduct led to the death of their loved one. They can sue for their financial challenges brought on by the death, and its emotional impact. Wrongful death lawsuits can result from accidents due to negligence, such as in an automobile accident, or fatalities due to malicious acts, like assault.
In some cases, the death may result in both criminal charges and a wrongful death lawsuit. A drunk driving incident, for example, may yield criminal charges like vehicular homicide as well as a wrongful death suit by the family of the innocent victim. When this happens, the cases proceed separately, with the criminal charges being pursued by law enforcement and the prosecutor, and the wrongful death suit being pursued by the survivors and their legal representation.
Your family deserves justice for the wrongful death of your loved one.
In order to collect compensation in the event of wrongful death, you’ll need to prove that your loved one’s death was the result of the perpetrator’s disregard for safety, an intentional act, or negligence. While this might seem obvious to the survivors based on the situation, proving these things in a legal sense can be more complicated. You need an attorney who understands the laws surrounding wrongful death litigation to help.
The attorneys at Wright Law Firm have the knowledge and expertise you need and understand the legal strategies necessary to win a wrongful death lawsuit. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or malicious behavior of someone one—whether an individual, a group of individuals, or an organization—we’re very sorry for your loss and can help you get justice to honor the memory of your loved one.
