Establishing Responsibility in a WRONGFUL DEATH CASE CAN BE COMPLICATED... WE CAN HELP!
If you lost a loved one in a wrongful death, you need to show that someone's conduct caused the death. Your attorney will need to prove that the person's conduct was the factor that resulted in your loved one's death. There must be proof that the death would not have happened if the other person did not act negligently.
If someone dies in an accident because of a drunk driver, we must find proof that the driver was intoxicated at the time of the auto accident. In a wrongful death case, the proof might be found in a police report that indicates the driver failed sobriety tests.
A wrongful death may occur instantly, or may take months or years before the person passes away. The time between the action of the person who caused the harm and the death of your loved one is not a factor as long as it can be proved that the defendant's action was the cause of death.
A wrongful death case can be complex. This is why it's important to connect with an experienced lawyer. For example, the insurance company lawyers might say your loved one somehow was partially responsible for his or her death. In some cases, this may affect your right to collect compensation. At Peake & Fowler, our aggressive attorneys know how to fight for your family and get you the compensation you deserve.
