Suing for a Fatal Accident: The Wrongful Death Case

Although most wrongful death cases are filed after a criminal trial results in a not guilty verdict (such as the O.J. Simpson wrongful death suit), there are many cases of wrongful death caused by accident or negligence. Warshafsky Law has extensive experience with such cases. Although we are based in Milwaukee, we handle cases throughout the country.

Situations in which wrongful deaths occur

There are laws governing wrongful death lawsuits, and every state has their own. One thing they all have in common is that a wrongful death lawsuit can only be filed by the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate. The same goes for any claim for personal injury, pain and suffering, or medical expenses of the decedent. Any monetary award conveys to the estate of the decedent, to be passed on to survivors as directed by the decedent’s will.

What is the legal standard for a wrongful death lawsuit?

The law identifies these elements as foundational for a wrongful death case:

  • Someone has died;
  • The person’s death was caused by someone else’s negligence or harmful intent;
  • The deceased’s family members are suffering financially as a result of the death;
  • There is a personal representative for the deceased’s estate

Recovering for Damages in a Wrongful Death Suit

Courts consider financial injury to the deceased’s family/spouse as the main type of damage. This includes the loss of financial support, lost prospects for inheritance, the services of the deceased, and any medical or funeral expenses. Awards of damages typically include interest on the award from the date of the decedent’s death.

In general, the law provides for fair and just compensation of the financial losses resulting from a wrongful death. Outlandish awards for pain and suffering are rare, and the only pain and suffering considered by the court is that endured by the deceased.
