How do Wrongful Death Lawyers Prove a Wrongful Death Case?
One of the very first things a wrongful death lawyer from our firm will do is investigate your case, looking for evidence of the other party’s negligence and liability. Evidence in a wrongful death case can come in many forms, such as:
- A police report
- Traffic camera footage of an accident
- Security camera or dashcam footage
- A witness’s cell phone photos of an accident scene
- Forensic evidence
- A bus’s black box data
You can be sure your lawyer will seek evidence to show the other party’s negligence and liability in your case. However, to actually establish negligence and liability, your lawyer will also have to show:
- The other party had a duty of care (a responsibility to act carefully in order to prevent harm to your loved one).
- The other party violated their duty of care (by acting very irresponsibly and recklessly).
- The other party’s actions led to the incident.
- Your family incurred damages as a result.
Building a case with evidence and establishing liability are difficult things to do, so you may want to leave them to one of our Jericho wrongful death attorneys. Your attorney will do everything they can, so you can feel justice has been achieved in your case.

What Damages Can I Demand in a Jericho Wrongful Death Case?
You, your loved one, and the rest of your family suffered because of someone else’s terrible actions or reckless failure to take appropriate action. . You have the right to demand damages from this other party, including the damages your loved one experienced. Through a wrongful death lawsuit, you can demand:
- Any physical pain and related damages your loved one experienced before passing
- Any emergency medical bills and related bills your loved one incurred before passing
- The income and work benefits your loved one was bringing in for the family
- Any other financial damages your family may incur in the future
- Your loss of companionship and consortium, the special types of loss a person suffers when a spouse is a wrongful death victim

How Will My Wrongful Death Lawyer Resolve My Wrongful Death Case?
Your lawyer will handle your case with care and sensitivity and resolve your case with determination and assertiveness. Your lawyer should be able to resolve your case with the other party’s insurer and attorney, but if not, when indicated, your lawyer won’t hesitate to take your case before a judge and resolve your case in court.
Once your lawyer has prepared your case, you and your lawyer may choose to present it to the other party instead of taking it to court immediately. The other party may be willing to negotiate an appropriate settlement, and settlement negotiations could be more attractive for you, in terms of winning an excellent outcome in a shorter time than taking your case to court. To persuade the other party to negotiate, your lawyer is ready, willing, and able to take them to court.
If negotiations fail, your lawyer can hire the appropriate experts to corroborate your case, and then your lawyer can take the other party to court. There, your lawyer will fight for an appropriate verdict from the jury with a judge presiding.
