Determining Liability In A Wrongful Death Case

A wrongful death case in Arizona is basically a personal injury case that the surviving family members file. This means that to collect compensation; we must demonstrate the following important elements of personal injury are present:

  • Duty of care: We must establish that the liable party held a legal duty of care to the deceased.
  • Breach of duty: We must determine that the liable party breached that duty in some way, usually either through negligence or intentional harm.
  • Causation: We must connect that the breach of duty was the cause of the injury or death.
  • Damages: We must demonstrate that there are actual damages as a result of the injury or death.

Surviving family members including a spouse, children, parents, or a legal representative may be eligible to file a wrongful death case in the state of Arizona.

The Importance Of Filing Within Arizona’s Time Limits

Arizona limits the time in which we can file a wrongful death case. We have just two years from the date of the death. Waiting too long can make it difficult to collect the necessary evidence we need to build your wrongful death case. It is possible that you could lose out on the financial compensation that you and your family deserve.

At Zanes Law, we understand that filing a legal case is not the first thing on your mind after the loss of a loved one. However, because of the strict time constraints, it is important to discuss your case with a wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible at 833-675-9474.

Build Your Wrongful Death Case

Liability is not always apparent in a wrongful death case. It might take some investigating to uncover the details of what happened. We will build your case with the following information:

  • Police report
  • Medical records
  • Witness statements
  • Expert witness reports
  • Product inspections
  • Income documents
  • Images or videos of the accident

Our legal team will work hard to uncover the details of your case to determine who is at fault.

Determine The Value Of Your Case

Both economic and non-economic costs make up the value of your case. While it might be more difficult to place a value on the non-economic costs like pain and suffering and loss of parental guidance, they are just as crucial to the overall value.

We will calculate the overall value of your case, including the following costs:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost wages and work benefits
  • Property damage
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain and suffering

Calculating the value of your wrongful death case ahead of time can help us to better evaluate any settlement offers that you and your family might receive. Settlement offers can reduce the time spent in court and cut down on legal fees for both parties.

However, if a settlement offer does not appropriately cover you and your families’ damages, our legal team will continue fighting for the amount that you deserve.
