How Will a Wrongful Death Suit Help Me to Find Out What Happened?
An unexpected death can occur in many ways. Maybe your parent died mysteriously after being placed in a nursing home. Or your husband died after an implant surgery. You left your toddler at the same daycare center you have been using for months and received a call that your child was hit by a car. You could have lost a family member in a car accident or a crash with a big semitruck. Whatever caused your loved one’s death, you want answers.
In addition to wanting to know the truth of what happened, a wrongful death causes financial damages to the family. There are medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, maybe lost income and even the cost of therapy to help you deal with the emotional trauma of your family member’s death.
By filing a wrongful death lawsuit, your attorney can demand access to information and evidence that a company or an individual has no obligation to disclose unless they are forced to legally. The lawsuit will allow your attorney to gain access to evidence such as:
- Company records
- Witness testimony under oath at a deposition
- Tangible evidence such as access to a vehicle or a manufacturing plant
Once your attorney has amassed enough evidence to prove negligence or a wrongful act contributed to your family member’s death, the liable parties will likely offer to settle. The stronger your case, the more power your attorney will have to demand a fair and just settlement, or take it to court.
