Do I require the services of a wrongful death lawyer in Fishers, IN?
You may be able to file a claim if you were injured or a loved one died as a result of someone else's negligence. Regrettably, not every wrongful death case is compensable. You must understand Indiana's wrongful death statute's limitations and requirements. To recover damages under the Indiana Wrongful Death Act, a plaintiff must prove the following elements: the decedent was killed; the defendant is responsible for the death; the defendant caused the death; and the defendant's actions were the direct cause of the death. It is important to note that the statute does not require the defendant to demonstrate intent to harm or kill the victim.
While this appears to be straightforward, there are several exceptions that can limit or eliminate the claim, including: the defendant's negligence was not the direct cause of the death; the decedent was contributorily negligent; the decedent's own wrongful act was the direct cause of the death; the decedent committed suicide; or the decedent died in an unforeseeable accident. It is critical to consult with an experienced wrongful death lawyer who can review your case and explain the potential benefits of pursuing a claim to ensure you have a valid claim. Hoosier Injury Attorneys Fishers IN represents families who have lost a loved one in a wrongful death and assists them in recovering the compensation they are entitled to.
What does it mean to be held liable for wrongful death?
When someone is killed as a result of another person's negligence, that person is held responsible for their death. The victim's family may be able to seek compensation from the party responsible. Furthermore, the family may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the responsible party, which will usually include legal fees and other damages.
Liability for wrongful death can occur in two ways: 1) When someone is killed as a result of another person's negligent act; and 2) When someone is killed as a result of another person's negligent act while engaging in an activity in which a reasonable person would expect to be exposed to a risk of death or bodily harm. In many cases, the victim was expected to survive because he or she was recovering from a serious illness or injury. In those cases, the person responsible for the death was also held liable for wrongful death.
