What is Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death is a type of claim that is brought against an individual or organization whose negligent, reckless, or intentional act results in a deceased person. Each state has its own wrongful death statute in place to compensate the family members of the deceased and provide them with justice, as they can be entitled to damages composed of medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, funeral and burial expenses, as well as compensation for grief and emotional trauma. Wrongful death suits can be complicated and emotionally draining for those involved, so it is essential to have a lawyer or attorney experienced with these types of civil cases guiding you through the legal process.

A wrongful death lawsuit should be filed by an experienced attorney as soon as possible to ensure that the rights of your family and loved ones are represented and maximized through possible settlements. As wrongful death attorneys, we are here to provide assistance to families that have experienced devastating losses due to another’s reckless behavior and will fight diligently on your behalf so you can receive fair compensation. We understand that no amount of money may bring back a deceased person, but we do want justice served and ensure that victims are rightfully compensated.

How do you Prove Wrongful Death?

To prove wrongful death lawsuits, it’s important to first understand the state’s wrongful death statute. The state’s wrongful death statute determines the ways in which individuals filing a wrongful death suit may be compensated for their losses. It will also define who is eligible to pursue such litigation and who, if any, can be held liable for the wrongful death. Gathering evidence is essential at this step so that an individual can confidently file a wrongful death claim and present strong arguments in court. At Ciecka Law, our experienced attorneys are expertly equipped with the tools and resources necessary to handle wrongful death lawsuits and offer clients the best possible chance to get accountability from those responsible for the wrongful death of their loved one.

What is a Typical Wrongful Death Case?

Wrongful death cases are all too common and involve a wide range of tragic circumstances. In a wrongful death action, it is established that a person’s death occurred due to another party’s wrongful act, neglect, or default either willfully or through negligence. These cases can involve a wrongful action such as a criminal act, medical malpractice, fatal accidents from dangerous product usage, a car accident from a drunk driver, and any other situation in which the wrongful actions of another party led to the death of an innocent victim.

Is Wrongful Death a Criminal Case?

Wrongful death is a serious legal issue that needs to be accounted for, as the decedent’s survivors may pursue either a criminal or civil case. Wrongful death can be defined as when someone dies due to the negligence or fault of another person or entity, thus seeking not only justice but recompense. When a wrongful death occurs, criminal prosecution may also be warranted. Depending on the circumstances of the deaths and the laws governing the specific state in which they occurred, criminal charges may be leveled or waived in order to hold those responsible accountable for their actions. Ultimately it is up to Ciecka Law to ensure that all avenues are considered for justice through thorough evaluation and review of any evidence that could lead to a successful criminal case.
