Under Utah law, any surviving heir can sue for damages in the event of a wrongful death. Heirs include adoptive or biological children, parents, and spouses.
However, for you to have a solid case, the following elements must be present:
As with any personal injury case, negligence can be difficult to prove.
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, our attorneys have been representing clients in wrongful death suits since 1993.
We can investigate your case and determine who was really at fault for the loss of your loved one.
The law cannot replace your loved one. All a judge can do is award "damages" or financial compensation.
While it may seem cold to seek money after the loss of a loved one, a wrongful death lawsuit can be a way to honor them and protect others from suffering the way you have.
It can also provide relief from expenses, including funeral and burial costs.
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, we will always fight for the maximum compensation possible in your case. However, we also strive to personalize our methods to your preferences.
Whether you wish to aggressively pursue compensation in court or seek a quick settlement, we are here for you.
While a criminal case may offer some level of justice for your loss, it cannot provide for your financial stability. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit even if there is a criminal case in progress.
You can also pursue a civil suit if the individual responsible for your loss is not found guilty in court.
Wrongful death lawsuits are subject to a much lower standard of proof than criminal proceedings.
