Filing A Wrongful Death Action

Since the actual victim cannot initiate a civil action, someone must bring said suit on their behalf. However, in accordance with Utah State law, only certain parties are allowed to do so, including a surviving spouse, adult children, financial dependents under age 18, the decedent’s estate representative, parents, adoptive parents, and stepchildren.

Proving Wrongful Death

Successfully proving wrongful death can be quite challenging. Plaintiffs and their injury attorney must demonstrate that all of the following conditions occurred:
  1. A negligent act occurred.
  2. The negligence precipitated the death.
  3. The decedent perished due to injuries incurred during the incident, and from no other injury or ailment.
  4. The compensation sought is equal to the damages caused by the death.
A wrongful death attorney will help and do what is necessary to meet the burden of proof, such as investigating the negligent act(s), obtaining medical records, interviewing witnesses, and retaining the right expert witnesses.
