In order to prevail in a wrongful death case, you must prove that you are an Heir to the deceased, and that the deceased died due to someone else’s negligence. This type of case is often difficult to prove because the injured party has passed away. However, if proven, the compensation should be substantial.
Whether prosecuting such a case, or defending the case, discovery is an important tool as the plaintiff is deceased and unable to tell his story. Discovery such as depositions, Subpoenas and experts can be used to obtain critical evidence in support of your position.
