What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death can apply to many different circumstances, but it frequently involves the following situations:

  • Accidents With Vehicles: While car accidents are some of the most common forms of injury and death in Nevada, this can also apply to other vehicle incidents, like motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, and even boating accidents.
  • Medical Malpractice: If a medical provider failed to diagnose a patient with a condition that ultimately led to their death, the family might have grounds to file a wrongful death claim. This also applies to misdiagnoses and incorrect prescriptions for medication.
  • Hazards in the Workplace: In some cases, a defendant might have failed to take actions that prevented an individual’s death. Business owners or companies that do not properly notify employees of hazards or do not uphold safety standards can be liable for wrongful death if one of their employees is killed by unsafe working conditions.

Why Do I Need an Attorney?

It can be difficult for a loved one to quantify how much the death of someone close to them affected their family. An attorney can calculate an exact figure that represents the suffering you had to go through as a result of a loved one’s death. To do this, they evaluate certain criteria, like:

  • An attorney can determine the costs to hold a (reasonable) funeral. Burial or cremation costs can also be included in this figure.
  • If the decedent was in the hospital before they died, those expenses can be included in the final total.
  • Any physical damage to personal property that occurred as a result of the defendant’s negligent or reckless actions can be evaluated.
  • If the decedent provided income to the family, their lost wages are often added to a wrongful death settlement. This also sometimes applies to employee benefits, like health insurance.
  • When a decedent experiences pain or suffering before their death, those can be added to a settlement total.
  • Grief is also commonly considered when evaluating a wrongful death claim. Other emotional damages can be considered as well, including the pain experienced due to the decedent not being there to offer relief or support to family members.
  • If the decedent had retirement or other financial benefits for their heirs that cannot be paid out due to their premature death, this will also be considered.

While all these criteria can be considered when evaluating an exact figure for a settlement, they also require proof. An attorney in Sunrise Manor can help gather evidence like medical records, financial information, and other documentation to prove the hardship the family endured as a result of the victim’s death.

FAQs for Wrongful Death Lawyers

Q: How Much Is a Wrongful Death Claim Worth in NV?

A: In Sunrise Manor, a wrongful death claim can be worth anywhere from less than $1000 to over $1 million. Factors that influence a claim include how the person died, what expenses were incurred as a result of their death, and what actions the defendant did to cause the decedent’s death. For a more detailed estimate of how much your case might be worth, contact a wrongful death attorney.

Q: How Long Does a Wrongful Death Claim Take in NV?

A: A wrongful death claim can take as little as a few months to as long as a few years in Sunrise Manor. If an attorney is able to negotiate a settlement between you and the insurance company without going to trial, the process might end quickly. However, most claims that go to trial will take significantly longer than ones that do not. Court cases take a long time to occur and resolve, so it might take multiple years to receive damages from a claim that goes to trial.

Q: How Are Wrongful Death Settlements Calculated?

A: Wrongful death settlements are calculated based on the damages that the party filing the claim is requesting. An individual filing on behalf of the decedent can ask for the defendant to cover expenses for the funeral or other costs associated with their death. They can also ask for compensation for losses like the individual’s loss of companionship with the deceased or grief as a result of their death.

Q: How Do I Prove Wrongful Death in NV?

A: To prove wrongful death in Sunrise Manor, the plaintiff must show the following:

  • The decedent died. This is usually proved by a death certificate.
  • The defendant caused the decedent’s death. The cause can be due to a variety of factors, but the defendant’s actions or negligence must have caused the death.
  • The plaintiff must either be the decedent’s spouse, children, or another family member if they did not have a spouse or children. They can also be the personal representative of the decedent’s estate.
  • The plaintiff must have suffered in some way as a result of the victim’s death. This can include financial, psychological, and/or emotional suffering.

Receive the Damages You Deserve

To prove wrongful death, the person filing the claim must be able to show that the defendant is more likely to have caused the victim’s death than not. This can take a lot of evidence and personalized arguments that depend on the exact circumstances surrounding the case. For a detailed plan to recover damages for your wrongful death claim, schedule a consultation with Easton & Easton to review your options.

Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.

If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!
