Nothing can replace the loss of a loved one. Phoenix accident and injury attorney Bob Goldwater understands this and what families are going through after they have wrongfully lost a family member or loved one. In addition to the emotional turmoil that the loss has brought, a family is likely to face financial hardship due to medical bills and funeral expenses, not to mention the lost income from the family member they no longer have.
Wrongful death is a claim that can be brought in civil court against a person or entity responsible for the death of another. While the majority of wrongful death claims arise from negligence and accidental deaths, a wrongful death suit may be brought against a person for intentional wrongdoing and criminal action. For example, if a defendant was found not guilty in criminal court for murder or manslaughter, his or her family may be able to bring a civil suit against the defendant in order to seek retribution.
In a wrongful death lawsuit, the determination of guilt and the standard of proof are based upon a preponderance of evidence, meaning that it must be proven that it is more than likely true. This differs from criminal proceedings, wherein guilt must be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.
