Frequently Asked Wrongful Death Questions

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Under Colorado law, only certain individuals can file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased. In the first year after the death, only the surviving spouse can file a wrongful death claim. During the second year after the death, both the surviving spouse and any surviving children may file this lawsuit.

What If the Deceased Did Not Have a Spouse Or Children?

If the deceased person did not have a spouse or children, his or her parents may file the claim. In addition, the deceased person’s estate representative may also file a similar claim to recover certain losses, such as final care expenses and burial and funeral costs.

What Are Common Types of Wrongful Death Accidents?

Many accidents can result in a wrongful death — the unifying thread through each type is the negligent actions of another person or entity. Some of the most common types of wrongful death accidents include the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Dangerous or defective products
  • Truck accidents
  • Workplace accidents

How to Prove a Wrongful Death Claim in Colorado?

To prove that the death of your loved one was wrongful, you and your attorney will need to establish that the circumstances surrounding his or her accident involved negligence. You will need to prove the following elements to accomplish this.

  • The at-fault party owed the deceased person a duty of care.
  • The at-fault party breached his or her duty of care.
  • The breach of care directly caused the deceased person’s death.

Establishing these facts can be difficult without legal assistance — and Jordan Law has the resources, knowledge, and skills you need. We will work closely with you to learn your loved one’s story and launch a full-scale investigation to gather the evidence necessary to prove your case.
