When a person loses their life as a result of the negligent behaviors of
another, they are just as entitled to monetary compensation and legal
address as any other injury victim. Unfortunately, they are in no way
able to fight against the wrongs that led to their fatality. Therefore,
a wrongful death claim can be made by family members who have lost a loved
one due to the immoral or unlawful behaviors of someone else.
A family can seek retribution against the person who killed their loved
one by bringing a wrongful death claim case. Even if the person at fault
is already being persecuted in the criminal courts for murder or manslaughter,
there is still room for a civil lawsuit involving a wrongful death claim.
In fact, when fatality results from a company rather than an individual,
the only recourse that can be taken is to file wrongful death.
Wrongful death claims are brought by civil action when the loved ones of
the deceased are attempting to be compensated for death-related expenses.
These may include the financial strain that may be put on the family as
a result of lost income, medical expenses that the family has been left
with, or grievance and bereavement compensations. In a wrongful death
case, the standard of proof is the preponderance of the evidence. This
means, instead of the defendant being innocent until proven guilty, the
burden of proof is on them to prove that they did not, in fact, cause
What Qualifies as Wrongful Death?
It is important to note that a statute of limitations exists in cases of
wrongful death claims. This means that there is a time limit for how long
you can wait before filing a wrongful death claim, so you must act quickly
when addressing these issues if you and your loved ones wish to receive
accurate compensation. In matters like this, it is important to speak
to a lawyer to make sure all of your rights are protected.
For example, our Texas wrongful death law firm helped represent the family
of a 58-year-old man who was killed after falling 12 feet in a parking
lot while on the job. We took on the case and found that the parking lot
violated OSHA and ANSI regulations—namely for the fact that it was
missing a guardrail.
Attorney Jason Itkin tried the case for 6 days and was able to recover
a $2.9 million verdict— even though the defendant's pre-trial settlement
offer was only $200,000.
"Arnold & Itkin, they really do care about their clients. I really
can tell because we feel a bond with them. They are my brothers and sisters
from here on out."
