Who May File The Claim

Wrongful Death Case Defendants Have Legal Rights

Of course, every case - including yours - will have its own unique details. Some general outlines of the review process are listed below. For more information, contact Smith & Hassler today.

Monetary damages

  • The family can show that the death had a direct financial affect on them
  • The accident would have made the victim due for monetary damages, had he or she survived

Negligence or intent

  • The death was the direct result of another's negligence
  • The death was the direct result of a wrongful act with the intent to cause harm
