The loss of a loved one is always tragic and can be made even more devastating when that loss is sudden or unexpected. The term Wrongful Death applies if someone loses their life in an accident caused by the negligence or carelessness of another. Proving negligence or carelessness in a Wrongful Death claim can be a complicated process. The compassionate wrongful death attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm have the experience to provide you with representation in your time of need.

Elements of a Wrongful Death Claim

The four identifying elements of a Wrongful Death claim include:

  • The accident causing the death was caused entirely or partially by another
  • The death was a direct result of the negligent or careless actions of another
  • As a result of the death, you and your family suffered significant losses
  • The death has resulted in significant financial damages and tangible losses

Appointing a Personal Representative

Before you can pursue a claim, you must appoint a personal representative. This person acts as administrator if your loved one did not have a will. If your loved one had a will, this person acts as executor. This appointee acts on behalf of the estate making important decisions. To name this appointee, visit the probate court in the district where your loved one lived.
