Minnesota Evidence for MN Wrongful Death Case Attorney

Wrongful death is determined by three criteria:

  1. A person’s death occurred
  2. The death was due to negligence, a wrongful act or omission of a person or company
  3. The beneficiaries suffered financial or emotional loss due to the wrongful death

Evidence supported by a witness is imperative to prove fault in a wrongful death case.  The plaintiff must provide sufficient and compelling evidence to convince the judge or jury to rule in favor.  Also, witnesses must be willing to testify in a court of law and they need to explain the full details pertaining the the death.  Physical evidence like medical reports, testimonies and police reports will also be gathered.

Evidence from an expert witness can also be vital in a wrongful death case to explain issues that may not be obvious by the judge or jury.  Product liability, vehicle safety and workplace safety cases often use expert witnesses to testify.

Documents like bank records, employer records and business profit and loss reports are also presented as potential damages evidence to the judge or jury to prove that a recovery is justified.

It is important to seek legal advice for any wrongful death case.  Our attorneys at Tarshish Cody will do all of the necessary work – collect evidence, speak to expert witnesses and file your claim – for you so you can focus on recovery.  We welcome your call today on 952-361-5556 (or fill out the free Case Evaluation Form) to learn more about your case and how we can help.
