How To Prove Your Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Losing a loved one is heartbreaking, and when their death is caused due to the negligence of another person, the surviving family members may have the right file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party, but the question becomes, how to prove your wrongful death lawsuit.
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
Wrongful Death Lawsuit
A wrongful death claim can be filed against a person who’s conduct or negligence caused the death of another individual. If you wish to seek compensation, you claim will need to be filed as a civil lawsuit for monetary damages. Wrongful Death lawsuits can be complicated to handle alone, which is why you should hire an experienced Personal Injury Attorney to help with your case.
How To Prove Wrongful Death
After you have hired a wrongful death attorney in Georgia to assist with your lawsuit, it will be up to you and your attorney to prove the various elements of a wrongful death claim before you can recover any damages.
The court will need to be made aware that due to the defendant’s negligent actions, another individual lost their life.
To prove wrongful death occurred, the following must be established:
- Duty of Care: You and your personal injury attorney will need to prove to the court that the defendant owed a duty of care to the deceased individual, and because that duty was neglected, the other person died.
- Breach of Duty of Care: You will also need to prove that the duty of care that was owed to the deceased was breached by the defendant, such as, failing to abide by certain laws.
- Causation: Along with proving a breach of duty in some way, you must also prove that the negligent actions of the defendant directly caused the wrongful death.
