Wyoming Wrongful Death Law
A wrongful death is typically defined as any death that is proven to have been caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or party. The beneficiaries of the deceased in such cases are entitled to financial compensation from the person found liable for the deceased’s loss of life. Wrongful deaths can happen for a number of reasons and often involve multiple people or parties such as doctors, hospitals, private businesses, and even individuals who have been found to be responsible by a court of law.
Below are the common reported types of wrongful deaths:
- Work-related accidents due to unsafe conditions
- Defective auto part failures
- Medical malpractice such as misdiagnosis or malfeasance
- Plane crashes
- Defective medications
- Alcohol-related automobile crashes
Wrongful Death Settlement
Following the death of someone close to you, multiple factors can come into play. These factors vary in the degree and type of financial compensation you and the members of your family might eventually be entitled to in the form of a wrongful death settlement. A few of such factors are listed below:
- The number of legal dependents involved
- The amount of the deceased’s savings
- The total of their savings
- How negligent the defendant is found for the wrongful death
Wrongful death claims can be tricky to prove in a court of law. It’s best to be as prepared as possible by having qualified and professional legal representation before filing.
