There are various circumstances and accidents that may result in wrongful death. In order to seek legal action against the responsible party, the victim’s family has to show the burden of proof in order to establish liability.
With the help of the experienced wrongful death attorneys at Mott & Moffett, we may demonstrate the following elements of negligence that led to the loss of your family member:
- Establishing a duty of care: You must demonstrate that the liable party owed you reasonable duty of care. This could apply to motorists, property owners, physicians, supervisors, and product manufacturers.
- Proof of violation of a duty of care: You must demonstrate that the liable party violated that duty of care. This could include disregarding traffic laws and regulations, product defects, unsafe working conditions, or medical errors.
- Demonstrating causation: You must also prove that the negligent party directly caused your injuries due to careless or illegal acts. The negligent action and the resulting death need to be connected in order for the family to obtain compensatory damages.
- Confirming damages: You must prove that you have suffered economic and non-economic damages due to the negligence of the liable party.
