Overview: Wrongful Death
The loss of a loved one is one of the most painful experiences in life. The pain of moving on without a loved one can feel overwhelming and uncertain. In a moment, a lifetime of dreams and plans are suddenly gone. During this time, bills and expenses may pile up, adding more uncertainty and stress to your life.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death
Sometimes, a person or company’s recklessness or carelessness leads to the death of another person. When this happens, surviving family members may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim to recover damages. These claims go through civil courts. As such, they are separate from any criminal court proceedings against the “at fault” party.
A wrongful death can occur in many ways. The most common causes of wrongful death include:
- Auto Collisions
- Drunk Driving Accidents
- Motorcycle Collisions
- Truck Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- Railroad Accidents
- Defective Products
- Slip and Fall
- Premises Liability Accidents
- Oil Field Accidents
Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
In Montana, family members of the deceased can file a wrongful death claim. In order to win your claim, your wrongful death lawyer must establish four critical elements:
- The defendant owed a duty of care to the decedent
- The defendant breached this duty of care
- The breach of duty caused the fatality
- Surviving family members suffered damages as a result of the fatality
Only certain surviving family members can file a lawsuit. Generally, those family members include spouses, children and parents. In some cases, other family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit when there are no other surviving family members. An experienced wrongful death attorney can help you through this complex and trying process.
