Wrongful Death

When a family member tragically dies as a result of a car accident, sports injury or any other traumatic event, it can cause the family a great financial burden on top of the grief and sorrow from losing a loved one. If you have lost a family member due to another’s negligence, you should contact a Utah personal injury lawyer immediately and discuss the circumstances of your loss.

The Meaning Of Wrongful Death

Wrongful death means that the victim died as a result of the negligence or improper conduct of another individual, company or entity. The immediate family members of the deceased victim can pursue financial compensation for pain and suffering, personal injury and costs related to the injury brought about before the death.

There are four criteria necessary to file a wrongful death lawsuit:

  1. The victim has died.
  2. The death was caused by the negligence of the defendant.
  3. There is a surviving spouse, children or other dependents.
  4. There have been monetary damages to the surviving family members.

If all four of these elements exist, it is possible that you have a strong wrongful death claim. When the person who died was the sole or primary source of support in the family, this can greatly affect the future of that family.
