In some respects, a wrongful death claim is similar to a personal injury claim. Both claims result from the reckless or negligent behavior of someone else. When fault can be established, that person can be held legally and financially responsible for your loss. The incident that resulted in death could be a botched medical procedure, a car accident or a failure to properly maintain a building. Regardless of the circumstances, it is the burden of the Las Vegas wrongful death attorney to prove negligence beyond a reasonable doubt.
Nevada law makes it possible for the heirs of the deceased person to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. Proving responsibility can be a long and complex process, and that’s why it’s important to hire an experienced Las Vegas wrongful death attorney to handle the case.
