How Do I Know If I Have a Wrongful Death Case?
A wrongful death case must have three main components to be viable.
You cannot file your case after the statute of limitations has ended. In Utah, affected parties have only two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit, starting from the day of their loved one's passing. So, remember to act as soon as possible.
Using evidence, testimony, and investigation, your lawyer must prove beyond a doubt that the person or entity is at fault. If they leave any possible room for doubt, you may lose your case.
A wrongful death can result in tangible and intangible losses, such as a loss of companionship and loss of a source of financial support. Your attorney can calculate the value of these losses and pursue the restitution, so you can heal emotionally and avoid financial devastation.

Seek Justice for Your Loved One
Mr. Harris can identify all the parties responsible for the loss of your loved one and hold them accountable for their actions.
Prevent Others from Suffering
Often, a lawsuit can bring wrongdoing to light and prevent other losses.
A Wrongful Death Lawsuit Can Prevent Further Tragedy
Although financial restitution is a crucial part of pursuing a wrongful death suit, another important benefit is that it can bring attention to preventable negligent acts and potentially save lives.
For instance, if your loved one dies because of unsafe road conditions, a lawsuit will almost certainly spur the municipality to amend the danger and take measures to prevent similar hazards.
Meanwhile, the publicity that a case involving a drunk driver generates could likely discourage others from taking the same senseless risk.

The Alarming Number
Of Wrongful Deaths Nationwide
One of the leading causes of wrongful death in the U.S. is medical error. A 2000 report released by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine found that anywhere from 44,000 to 98,000 Americans die every year as a result of medical errors.
If the injury that cost you a loved one was caused by the negligence of recklessness of another party, it may qualify as wrongful death. Mr. Harris can help make that determination.
