Usually immediate family members are the proper people to sue another person or company for wrongful death. If you are a spouse or family member of a person who died because of another person or company's acts, then you may have a claim for wrongful death.
what does it take to win a wrongful death case
Make no mistake wrongful death cases are very serious and require years of trial experience to be successful. Nevada law requires many things in order for a wrongful death case to even make it to trial and in front of a jury to award you money. Here is what must be proven to win a wrongful death case:
- A person died;
- Because of another person's careless or purposeful acts;
- Surviving family members who have lost or missed out on money because of the death
- A person (usually family) to hire an attorney to file the lawsuit on behalf of the dead individual and make decisions for the deceased person's estate (a personal representative for the decedent's estate).
