I think the driver who killed my loved one was drunk, but the police say that the evidence was inconclusive. Will the lack of definitive evidence prevent me from filing a wrongful death case? Should I still contact a Milwaukee wrongful death lawyer?

You should contact a Milwaukee wrongful death attorney because you may be able to file a wrongful death case even if the evidence about the driver’s blood alcohol content is inconclusive.

When you file a wrongful death case you do not have to prove that a driver’s blood alcohol content was above the legal limit of 0.08%. Instead, you must prove that the driver was negligent and that the negligence caused your loved one’s death. A driver may be negligent regardless of his or her blood alcohol levels.

In order to prove that the driver who killed your loved one was negligent, it is important to contact a Milwaukee fatal accident lawyer as soon as possible. Your lawyer can conduct an investigation—independent of the police investigation—to determine what really happened to your loved one. That information may be useful to you and may allow you to recover the damages to which you are legally entitled.
