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 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 fault has been proven, we will document the consequences or damages that you have faced after losing your loved one.
Compensation for Wrongful Death Claims
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. But these measurable economic, or monetary, losses are not the only damages you may be facing; wrongful death cases also come with very real non-economic damages as well. It takes a skilled wrongful death attorney to ensure that surviving family is properly compensated for all losses.
Typical damages in wrongful death cases include:
- Loss of companionship
- Medical bills
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of income
- Personal pain and suffering
You should not have to bear the economic burden for an accident that never should have happened in the first place. Do not endure this hardship alone; let our team handle the legal aspect of your case while you focus on yourself and your family.
