To prove wrongful death, you must have solid evidence that the individual’s passing resulted from the carelessness or negligence of another person. There needs to be evidence of a breach of duty and quantifiable damages.
For instance, a medical doctor has the duty to maintain a person’s health. A breach of duty would constitute negligent actions. The doctor might have ignored glaring medical issues, mixed-up prescriptions, etc.
Finally, the victim’s death must be shown to have generated quantifiable damages. Damages may include medical expenses, loss of income, burial costs, hospitalizations, pain and suffering, and more.
Unfortunately, the burden is on the victim’s family or plaintiff to prove that a defendant breached the duty. Establishing this requires convincing evidence.
