How Is Wrongful Death Proven?
In order to successfully prevail in a wrongful death claim, the plaintiff must meet the burden of proof showing that the victim would have lived if it had not been for the defendant’s negligence. The plaintiff must show the victim had a duty of care and that duty of care was breached, directly causing the death of the victim. Because wrongful death can be difficult to prove, it’s in your best interest to secure knowledgeable legal representation.
