Egan Explains: How to Build a Strong Wrongful Death Case

When a person’s death is the result of another party’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions, surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death claim. These claims can help families recover compensation for the financial, emotional, and psychological losses they have suffered. At the Law Offices of Kenneth G. Egan, it is our goal to provide compassionate support to those who have lost a loved one.

Proving Wrongful Death

To prove wrongful death, the plaintiff must establish four key elements:

  1. The defendant owed a duty of care to the deceased.
  2. The defendant breached that duty of care.
  3. The breach of duty caused the deceased’s death.
  4. The plaintiff has suffered damages as a result of the deceased’s death.

Building a Strong Case

The plaintiff’s attorney will need to gather evidence to support these elements, including accident reports, medical records, witness statements, and expert testimony. The attorney will also need to develop a strategy for presenting the evidence to the jury in a way that is clear and persuasive.

Navigating the Legal Process

Wrongful death claims can be complex and time-consuming. It is important to work with an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights.
