Every wrongful death case is different, and every situation brings its own set of facts into play. In general, to prove negligence, a plaintiff must show that the other party failed to exercise a reasonable amount of care in the conduct of whatever actions are involved in the case.
Some instances can be relatively straightforward to prove. A drunk driver who causes a wreck that results in the death of another driver or passenger is negligent by the fact of being drunk and driving. Not only is this illegal, but it’s almost impossible to make the case that the drunk driver exercised a level of care in their decision making that would be considered reasonable.
In other wrongful death cases, it can be more difficult to show negligence.
