Wrongful Death Lawsuit Criteria

Posted on April 20th, 2009 No Comments

Watching a loved one suffer an injury due to the negligence of someone else is a painful and frustrating experience. Although we recognize that everyone makes mistakes and that the injury was more than likely not caused intentionally, the financial and physical damages cannot be denied. But when a loved one dies due to the negligence of another, the situation takes on an entirely different light; after all, the loss of a loved one is a loss that cannot be repaid with any amount of money.

How to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

In order to file a lawful death lawsuit, a number of criteria must be met. Because these criteria can differ between jurisdictions, having the aid of an experienced and skilful Cincinnati wrongful death lawyer is imperative. The defendant’s negligent behavior must be directly responsible, either fully or partially, for the victim’s death, although in certain cases, such as defective products, negligent behavior is not a necessity. Furthermore, specific financial damages must have occurred, such as lost wages or funeral expenses, and there must be a surviving spouse, dependant or beneficiary.
