Liability and Compensation

Liability in a wrongful death suit is basically the process of determining who is at fault for the death and to what extent. A jury will determine if the person that is being named at fault for the death acted in a negligent manner, thereby causing the death.

Once liability is established and, if the jury rules in your favor, then we can work to collect a settlement. The settlement is intended to restore the injured party back to the position they were in before the accident. Settlements may include money to restore the following:

  • Loss of wages
  • Emotional damages
  • Funeral expenses
  • Damaged property
