Maricopa Wrongful Death Attorneys

Nobody wants to know that their loved one has tragically died. Tragic deaths happen every day in various ways, such as car accidents, truck accidents, boating accidents, birth injuries, medical malpractice, defective products, premises liability, and even intentional ways such as crimes. 

If someone’s negligent or reckless behavior has caused your loved one to die, you may want justice. You want this person to pay for what they did — and technically, they can with a wrongful death lawsuit. 

You can receive compensation for the losses you have suffered due to your loved one’s death. However, placing a dollar figure on the life of a family member can be a frustrating experience. At  Saavedra Law Firm, our experienced Maricopa wrongful death lawyers will worry about the legal process while you focus your attention on grieving your loss.

Do You Have a Valid Claim?

The plaintiff, or filing party, has the burden of proof in proving that the defendant caused their loved one’s death and resulting damages. A valid wrongful death claim includes these four main elements:

  • Duty of care. The liable party had a lawful duty to exercise reasonable care over the victim. This is usually not an issue and refers to patient-doctor relationships and motorists on the roadway. 
  • Breach of duty. The liable party acted in a negligent or reckless manner toward the victim. 
  • Proximate cause. The person’s negligence was a direct cause of your loved one’s death and related damages.
  • Damages. You and your family members suffered damages, or compensable losses, due to your loved one’s death. These damages may include funeral costs, pain and suffering, and lost income.

What Does a Wrongful Death Lawyer Do?

A wrongful death lawyer can do the following:

  • Investigate your case. A lawyer can assess the facts of the case to determine what happened and who is at fault. They will review the police report, eyewitness statements, surveillance video, and other evidence to help you prove your case. 
  • Explain your legal rights. Your lawyer can help you understand the laws involved since they vary from state to state. You will be informed about important laws and rights, such as the statute of limitations and which family members can file a claim. 
  • Help you obtain compensation. A lawyer can help uncover all the economic and non-economic damages you are entitled to receive. These damages may include medical bills, funeral expenses, lost income, grief, mental anguish, pain and suffering, loss of support, loss of companionship, and more.
