Negligent acts by others should never be tolerated, especially when the negligence causes the death of an innocent person. Those who lose a loved one have the opportunity to hold the party responsible for the death accountable. The survivors can—and should—file a Wisconsin wrongful death suit for the losses caused by the death.
When filing a wrongful death lawsuit, it is important to make sure you have the elements it takes to build a case. Generally, there are three requirements that you should meet before you meet with your Wisconsin wrongful death lawyer.
The three requirements to be met for a wrongful death lawsuit are:
1. Proof of death. This is any legal document that proves that the named person is deceased. The most common proof of death is in the form of a death certificate that is signed by the coroner.
2. Evidence to present. You will need to provide evidence that another party is at least partially responsible for the death. This can also include witnesses to the death.
3. Damages sustained. To have a case, there must be some sort of damaged that was sustained to the person or group filing the lawsuit. The damages can be either emotional suffering or financial loss.
