What Are the Chances of Winning a Wrongful Death Suit?

Determining your chances of winning a wrongful death suit requires a nuanced understanding of several key factors. At Roberts Lambert, our experience and expertise in this area allow us to assess these factors thoroughly. We pride ourselves on giving our clients a realistic understanding of their case's potential.

Firstly, success in a wrongful death lawsuit heavily depends on the ability to establish negligence or fault. This involves proving that the death resulted from another party's actions or lack thereof. Our skilled attorneys excel at investigating and gathering compelling evidence. This may include medical reports, witness testimonies, expert opinions, among other evidentiary categories. We relentlessly build a strong foundation for your case, enhancing the likelihood of a favorable outcome.

The quality of your legal representation plays a crucial role. Our team has a deep knowledge of wrongful death laws. Our strategic approach to litigation significantly increases the chances of success. We know how to combat the other side’s tricks and distortions. It is our mission that your case be presented honestly and effectively in court or negotiation settings.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases arise from a variety of circumstances. Each is unique yet often connected by a common thread of negligence or misconduct. Common causes include motor vehicle accidents where reckless or impaired driving leads to fatal consequences. Medical malpractice is another significant cause, involving errors in diagnosis, treatment, or surgical procedures. Workplace accidents, particularly in high-risk industries like construction or manufacturing, can also result in wrongful deaths due to unsafe working conditions or a lack of safety protocols.

Additionally, defective products, ranging from faulty automotive parts to unsafe consumer goods, can lead to tragic losses. The underlying factor is typically a failure to uphold a standard of care or safety, leading to preventable tragedies that have lasting impacts on families and communities.

What Is Considered a Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death occurs when an individual dies as a result of another party's negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. This concept is rooted in the legal principle that individuals or entities should be held accountable for wrongful behavior that causes other’s deaths.

In a wrongful death claim, the deceased person's family or estate representatives are able to seek financial compensation for their loss. This compensation can cover expenses like funeral costs, lost income, loss of companionship, pain and suffering and emotional distress. The key to such a claim is proving that the death was a direct result of the defendant's actions or negligence.

How to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Properly handling a wrongful death suit can be complex and overwhelming. That's why we simplify the process into clear, manageable steps. Our approach ensures that you are fully informed and supported at every stage.
