Wrongful Death Law
Legal action for a wrongful death case is available for the deceased’s surviving family, usually a spouse, children or sometimes parents. The lawsuit involves the circumstance where the victim was killed by the negligent, reckless, or intentional acts of the defendant. While a murder would be prosecuted through a criminal court system, a wrongful death case is filed through a civil lawsuit. In a criminal case, the burden of proof is “beyond a reasonable doubt,” while in a civil case, the burden of proof is determined by a “preponderance of the evidence.”
