How can you find out who is responsible for the untimely and unjust death of a loved one? To start this process, the best resources will need to be tapped into. Although nothing can bring back the wonderful life that was your loved one, if there was a possibility that negligence, dereliction of duty, willful intent or unintentional but deadly actions were to blame, then someone should be held accountable. Investigations into the surrounding circumstances must be made. Approaching can seem as remote of a thought as any other when mourning the loss of a beloved family member. Yet, time is of the essence where investigations are concerned. Why should investigations be made? To find out all the facts. Once the facts are known, then the legal experts of Kash Legal Group can begin to build a case on behalf of the person that was lost to possible wrongful death.
What is wrongful death? The working definition of wrongful death is where a person or group of persons causes the death of another person by negligence or by willful intent. Death that results from another person or persons’ wrongful behavior is a reason for heirs or beneficiaries of the decedent to seek legal remedy against those who were responsible. There are statutes that govern this action which vary from state to state. Depending on the individual state statute, definitions exist on who can file suit as well as outlining specific limitations on awards from damages. This area is one that should be pursued by expert court lawyers, such as the ones that are on staff at Kash Legal Group.
Wrongful death litigation is a separate form of legal remedy from a legal case with criminal charges for a murder or manslaughter, for example. Many accidents can be considered negligence and be a part of a wrongful death tort, depending on state statutes. Accidentally causing death by a bump on the head, causing someone to fall, or leaving out lethal weapons or substances that could cause a fatality are all examples of negligence. The death caused to an unborn fetus is not considered eligible as a wrongful death, since the unborn have not yet lived to obtain legal status. However, if the infant is born and then dies as a result of some cause related to negligence during prenatal conditions, a wrongful death suit can be brought up in court.
