Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is tragic, especially when the loss of life is caused by the negligence or misconduct of a third party. Legal action for wrongful death belongs to the descendant’s immediate family members, usually a surviving spouse, children and sometimes parents.

At the Krohn Law Firm, we handle wrongful death suits. If you are seeking legal action for the wrongful death of a loved one, the preservation of evidence is critical. Wrongful death suits are brought against both individuals and companies. Wrongful death lawsuits involve the circumstance where the victim was killed by the negligent, reckless or intentional acts of the defendant.

Many wonder, “What is the difference between murder and wrongful death?” The prosecution of murder is handled through the criminal court system, whereas wrongful death is pursued by way of a civil lawsuit. It is important to note that in criminal cases, the burden of proof is “beyond a reasonable doubt.” However, in civil cases, the burden of proof is determined by a “preponderance of the evidence.”

Timeliness is very important as preserving evidence and identifying defendants are critical factors in wrongful death cases. Proving a case by demonstrating the liability and damages involved requires both experience and skill.

The accidental and sudden death of a loved one is devastating. Our firm will work to obtain financial compensation for your loss. Family members of a wrongful death victim can recoup expenses for a wide variety of items, including the loss of love, companionship and moral support, as well as medical bills, funeral costs, financial support, inheritance, anticipated earnings, and pain and suffering.

Michael Krohn is a skilled and compassionate advocate for you to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. The truth is that most “accidents” could have been avoided.
