Vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents and medical malpractice injuries can cause tragic, catastrophic damages. Most accident victims recover from the injuries sustained, however, there are incidents where the victim is killed at the scene or dies en route to the hospital or even several days later. These cases are referred to as accidental death cases and/or wrongful death cases. An accidental death is one where a death was not intended to happen. These unexpected and untimely deaths are due to the negligence and carelessness of others. The person or people responsible for the death of your family member should be held accountable for the pain and suffering they have caused.

Clear and convincing evidence is necessary to win your lawsuit.

The amount that can be recovered in an individual’s wrongful death lawsuit depends on the ability of the family to bring clear and convincing evidence that the death was caused or contributed to by the individual or entity being sued. Often, a victim’s assailant can be tried first in criminal court, then brought to civil court. The civil trial, if any, is completely independent of any criminal action. These issues are extremely emotional and legally complex. Thus, it is recommended that families who believe their loved one has died due to the negligence or misconduct of another immediately contact an experienced Utah personal injury lawyer with expertise in such wrongful death cases.
