The loss of someone you care about is never easy, but when your loved one’s death was the result of another person’s negligence or misconduct, the situation becomes even more complex.  At Mitchell Law Offices, we understand what you’re going through—the funeral planning, the mix of emotions you are dealing with, and the questions you want answered—and we have the experience to guide you through it.  Our wrongful death lawyers will be more than your legal system of support—we’re here for you.

Elements of a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

In order to bring a successful wrongful death cause of action, the following elements must be present:

  • The death of a human being
  • Cause of death was another’s negligence or with intent to cause harm
  • The survival of family members who are suffering monetary injury as a result of the death
  • The appointment of a personal representative for the decedent’s estate

A wrongful death claim may arise out of a number of circumstances, such as in the following situations:

  • Medical malpractice that results in decedent’s death
  • Automobile or airplane accident
  • Occupational exposure to hazardous conditions or substances
  • Criminal behavior
  • Defective product
  • Death during a supervised activity
