3 Important Points in order to prove a Wrongful Death.

Deaths caused by negligence is a tragedy and causes much pain and suffering. Even though there is no amount of money that can erase the pain, it can ease some of the struggle when it comes to the expenses or loss of income.

A wrongful death claim allows a civil lawsuit by an immediate family member in which the death was caused by another person or a negligent act. The immediate family members can sue for damages for funeral expenses, lost financial support and pain and suffering.

Negligence in a Wrongful Death Case. The plaintiff must prove the following elements:

1. Proving Duty. The defendant could be liable for negligence if they owed the family member a duty of “due care.” 

2. Proving Breach of Duty. In case that “duty” was proved then evidence must be presented.

3. Proving Causation. The next point to be proved is that the defendant’s actions caused the deceased person harm.

4. Proving Damages. The plaintiff has to prove that the deceased person did suffer damages caused by the alleged negligence.

Please be aware that when it comes to other negligence cases, the plaintiff could prove all the points but still lose the case due to lack of sufficient or real evidence proving the real harm was suffered.
