What Types Of Evidence Are Needed In Wrongful Death Lawsuits?

Saturday, May 6th, 2023

To bring a lawsuit forward, you must have substantial evidence to back up your claim. In wrongful death cases, there are certain critical elements involved that can help you prove the validity of your claim.

This includes:

  • The responsible party owed your loved one a duty of care
  • This duty of care was breached
  • The breach of duty directly caused your loved one’s death

In criminal cases, an element of intent will likely need to be proven or demonstrated in order to secure a conviction. This may require eyewitness testimony, expert opinions, and a thorough investigation of applicable case law.
