For a wrongful death case experts are hired to support the evidence that is needed in a wrongful death case to get a substantial recovery.
The tragedy of a wrongful death case can be overwhelming. Wrongful death refers to a lawsuit which alleges that the victim was killed as a result of the negligent conduct or misdeeds of another. Most wrongful death suits are based on negligence, and as with all negligence suits, you will need to prove that the wrongdoer had a duty to act in a certain manner, failed to act in such a responsible manner (breached the duty), and such failure caused the death of your loved one.
Wrongful death cases are different than other claims, in that they involve damages for loss of consortium, society, affection and companionship, which means the loss of having that person around you. The estate has claims for the loss of the earnings capabilities of the victim and funeral and burial expenses as well.
