Unexpectedly, losing a family member in a tragic accident is one of the most difficult experiences a person can face. The situation is made even more difficult with the knowledge that the accident could have been prevented if not for the carelessness or recklessness of another person.

Successfully pursuing a wrongful death claim requires an experienced and trusted Fargo wrongful death lawyer who is skilled in the methods of effectively proving fault for the death.

With many years of experience serving the families of victims in North Dakota and Minnesota, I, Jonathan C. Ruth, know how to navigate these challenging cases. You can rest assured knowing your wrongful case is in capable hands at Ruth Law Firm.

Proving A Wrongful Death Claim In North Dakota

Wrongful death claims may arise from any circumstance where one party’s negligence led to another person’s death. In order for the claim to be legally valid, there are certain elements that must be proven.

This is where a qualified Fargo personal injury attorney can help.

Successfully proving a wrongful death claim involves:

  • Proving that the other party had a duty to provide a certain level of care to the individual who lost their life in the accident.
  • Proving that the other party failed to provide this duty to the individual.
  • Proving that the failure of the offending party to fulfill their duty resulted in or caused, the loss of life.
  • After the fault has been proven, I will document the consequences or damages that you have faced after losing your loved one.

Legal Compensation For Wrongful Death Claims In Fargo

After losing a loved one in a serious accident, you may find yourself facing steep expenses and wondering how you’re going to manage them.

Typical damages in wrongful death cases include:

  • Loss of companionship
  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
