Wrongful Conviction Day

Hello everyone. I know it’s been a while since our last post, but Kim and I have been very busy trying to free the wrongfully convicted. Yesterday was National Wrongful Conviction Day and we would like to take a few minutes to reflect on that.

According to the National Registry of Exonerations as of today there have been 2,101 exonerations, totaling more than 18,250 years lost.

In a Special Edition of Time Magazine they illustrate why falsely accused people are being exonerated today more than ever before.

Kim and I are proud to say that we were able to successfully obtain the exonerations of Jonathan Fleming and Randy Williams.

Personal Injury Investigations: Wrongful Death and why you need a private investigator

cementerio-948048_960_720

 

By definition, a wrongful death is the result of a wrongful act or negligence of a person, or entity, which caused a death and is filed as a civil lawsuit. A wrongful death suit is sometimes filed if a criminal action has failed to bring about a conviction.

Furthermore, there are several types of wrongful deaths:

Malpractice / Medical Investigations: These investigations often focus on wrongful death caused by medical negligence and incorrect medical treatment.

Workplace Investigations: Industrial accident investigations are motivated by deaths caused by company negligence or company mismanagement.

Products Liability Investigations: These investigations find wrongful deaths caused by badly-designed and poorly-tested consumer goods.

Accident Investigations / Criminal Investigations: These investigations uncover criminal responsibility for a wrongful death as well as for a crime.

 

How do you know you have a wrongful death suit?

Determining if there is a wrongful death relies on evidence uncovered and analyzed by investigators who have the tools and experience to best advise their client and/or their attorney. A private investigator can use their expertise in technology, as well as gather witness testimony or physical, forensic, and medical evidence.

Occasionally, a wrongful death is discovered by investigators involved with another type of investigation like an accident, personal injury, or homicide. The evidence collected would subsequently be turned over to the client’s attorney for filing legal claims and determining compensation.

Compensation

Clients filing a wrongful death civil lawsuit are entitled to compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. Although each lawsuit will be different, as well as subject to applicable state laws, the type of compensation will depend on the specific facts of the case.

Some examples of compensation include:

Economic damages:

  • The victim’s income capacity for a projected lifespan;
  • Services performed by the victim that now must be performed by another person;
  • Gifts that the victim would likely have bestowed upon the survivor had the decedent been alive; and
  • Medical, hospital, and funeral expenses.

Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering:

  • The loss of the victim’s companionship, advice, love, and moral support;
  • The loss of sexual relations between married spouses;

The role of a private investigator in wrongful death investigation

A wrongful death lawsuit has a statute of limitations specified by each state’s law, usually two years. If a lawsuit is not filed within the time limit, you lose your right to file a legal claim. It’s imperative to find out if you have enough proof to pursue a wrongful death claim.

A private investigator who has experience in collecting the proper evidence to prove your case will turn it over to your attorney who can quickly assess if it is worth pursuing.

When you have the necessary proof, and engage a personal injury attorney, the private investigator should then be a part of the legal team. Their findings become part of the attorney work product where opinions, theories, and strategies are protected.

Personal Injury Investigations: Workplace

22092547481_5b2120e86a_b

A work related injury or illness which occurs as the result of events in the work environment are typically covered under the employer’s worker’s compensation insurance. However, there are exceptions and in some cases an employee may sue for damages caused by those injuries.

Once avenues are pursued through insurance companies and employer negotiations, an employee may exercise the right to file a civil suit. It is recommended they have the assistance of a personal injury attorney.

Why would a client need an investigator to work with their attorney in a personal injury claim? 

An accomplished private investigator working with an attorney can provide invaluable help to the case throughout the settlement or litigation process.

An investigator can work for either plaintiff attorneys or defense attorneys to provide unbiased information, documents, and witness testimony. They can supply the needed information to establish liability in the claim and help determine whether it should move forward towards a settlement or trial.

Experienced investigators can best document and analyze information for all legal and regulatory entities and, whether used in court or not, the evidence furnished will expedite the case. The quality of the investigation can often determine the outcome of the client’s claim.

Beyond worker’s compensation

Most employers are required to carry worker’s compensation insurance, but according to an attorney advice website, “Although workers’ compensation can provide money and benefits to an injured worker, temporary disability and permanent disability payments are usually quite low and don’t compensate the worker for things like pain and suffering. Workers’ compensation also does not provide punitive damages to punish an employer for poor safety controls or dangerous conditions. That’s why it’s important for injured workers to understand their rights to bring a case outside of the workers’ compensation system.” (NOLO)

If an employee feels they are entitled to file a claim or civil suit due to negligence of an employer, the burden of proof is on them to show fault. With the support of a competent investigator, the evidence collected will aid in building the case properly and legally.

A personal injury attorney will screen all cases and know if a client is exaggerating their claims. Once again, the investigator will interview witnesses, doctors, and co-workers that can provide information regarding the client’s character, work ethic and honesty to lend credibility to the claim should it go to court.
