If You’ve Lost Someone You Love, We Can Help You Seek Accountability

Wrongful death is a tragic situation in which someone loses his or her life due to the negligence or willful misconduct of another. The law allows for a just financial compensation to the survivors for the loss of relationship with the victim and for the income the victim likely would have earned had he or she lived, related financial benefits to the survivors, and medical and funeral costs. Monteleone Law Offices, P.L.L.C. have considerable experience in wrongful death law and are available to aggressively pursue your case.

Examples Of Wrongful Death Cases

There can be many scenarios leading to a wrongful death claim, including:

  • Medical malpractice, including errors made during surgery or in-patient care
  • A car accident or truck accident caused by a negligent driver
  • Negligence in the workplace
  • An accident in a public place caused by faulty maintenance or construction
  • Criminal behavior such as drunk driving or assault

A good rule of thumb is that any behavior or action which would warrant a personal injury lawsuit (if the victim had survived) would also qualify for a wrongful death claim.

What is Considered a Wrongful Death in Idaho?

In Idaho, a wrongful death is defined as the death of a person caused by the wrongful or neglectful act of another. Civil actions are defined in Idaho Statutes: Title 5, Chapter 3. This could include any act or omission that is considered to be negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct. Some examples of wrongful deaths in Idaho include:

  • Car accidents caused by drunk driving or distracted driving
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Product liability
  • Premises liability
  • Assault and battery

In order to be considered a wrongful death, the death must have been caused by the negligence or intentional act of another person. If the death was caused by a natural cause, such as a heart attack or stroke, it is not considered a wrongful death.

The specific requirements for a wrongful death lawsuit in Idaho can be complex, so it is important to speak with an experienced attorney if you have lost a loved one due to someone else's negligence.

Here are some of the damages that may be available in a wrongful death lawsuit in Idaho:

  • Economic damages: These damages compensate for the financial losses that the family has suffered as a result of the death, such as lost wages, medical expenses, and funeral costs.
  • Noneconomic damages: These damages compensate for the loss of relationship with the victim, such as the loss of comfort, care, companionship, and society. Although Idaho law compensates for the untimeliness of a death caused by another, unfortunately, no damages are allowed for grief or sorrow.
  • Punitive damages: These damages are awarded to punish the wrongdoer and deter them from similar behavior in the future. Punitive damages are not available in all cases, and they are rarely awarded in wrongful death cases.

The amount of damages that a family can recover in a wrongful death lawsuit will depend on the specific facts of the case. However, in general, the more serious the injuries and the more extensive the damages, the higher the award will be.
