Building a Successful Wrongful Death Claim

A wrongful death claim is successful if it proves, with evidence, that four conditions are true. These conditions are as follows:

The Responsible Party or Parties Owed Your Loved One a Duty of Care

We first must show that the responsible party or parties owed your loved one a duty of care. This duty is often implied. For instance, drivers have a duty of care to look out for other motorists as well as pedestrians. Healthcare providers have a duty to meet or exceed professional standards when providing care to patients. Manufacturers must make their products safe and put them through quality control to ensure they do not pose a danger to users. Property owners and managers have a duty to their guests to keep their premises safe and free from hazardous conditions.

The Responsible Party Did Not Uphold Their Duty of Care

Next, we must demonstrate that the responsible party failed to uphold their duty of care. We may be able to make this case by showing evidence of negligent or wrongful behaviour. This behaviour might involve breaking a traffic law, manufacturing a shoddy or flawed product, allowing a dangerous condition to fester on one’s property, or providing substandard medical care.

This Failure Led to Your Loved One’s Death

Third, we have to draw a cause-and-effect relationship between the responsible party’s failure and your loved one’s death. We must make a convincing case that if the other party had shown your loved one the duty of care to which they were entitled, your loved one would most likely still be alive. Depending on the circumstances of your loved one’s death, there are many forms of evidence we may potentially use to make this connection strong.

You Incurred Damages Because of Your Loved One’s Death

Lastly, in order to win compensation, we must lay out the damages, both economic and noneconomic, that you have incurred as a direct result of your loved one’s death. These damages may include the following:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial costs
  • Loss of the deceased’s future income
  • Loss of love, guidance, and companionship
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Medical expenses (that accrued before your loved one lost their life)
  • And more if you qualify
