Why File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

There are a number of reasons why you should file a wrongful death lawsuit, including:

  • The criminal justice system simply isn’t set up to provide justice or peace of mind for the families of victims. Prison sentences and criminal fines are usually not comforting to victims, and all-too-often, overburdened prosecutors and criminal courts have to rely on plea deals to clear their docket. A civil wrongful death suit is the only function of the justice system that truly allows your voice to be heard, and for you to call the shots as to whether or not to proceed with a case.
  • The burden of proof is not as strict in a civil suit. In criminal court, the burden is on the prosecution to prove the defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This can be difficult to prove when witness statements conflict, or other discrepancies exist. In a civil suit, you must only prove that the other driver was “more likely than not” to be responsible, raising the likelihood that you’ll have a positive outcome.
  • Recovery is never complete, but a successful wrongful death claim can bring financial security for you and your family—compensation you deserve.
  • In a wrongful death claim, family members can request compensation for your loved one’s pain and suffering, and for mental anguish.
  • Your family can also bring a wrongful death claim to recover loss of companionship, loss of economic support and other damages.
