What is a Wrongful Death in Utah?

Wrongful death occurs when someone dies due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions of another person or entity. In Utah, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed to seek damages on behalf of the deceased person's surviving family members or beneficiaries.

To succeed in a wrongful death lawsuit in Utah, you typically need to prove the following elements:

  1. Death of a Person: You must demonstrate that a person has died.
  2. Death Caused by Another's Negligence or Wrongful Act: You need to establish that the death was caused by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another person or entity. This could involve actions such as medical malpractice, car accidents, defective products, or criminal behavior.
  3. Surviving Family Members or Beneficiaries: There must be surviving family members or beneficiaries who have suffered harm as a result of the death. In Utah, eligible family members may include the deceased person's spouse, children, parents, or other dependents.
  4. Damages: You must show that the death has resulted in damages, such as loss of financial support, loss of companionship, emotional distress, or funeral and medical expenses.

In Utah, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed by the personal representative of the deceased person's estate. Potential beneficiaries who may receive damages in a successful lawsuit include the deceased person's spouse, children, parents, or other dependents.

The statute of limitations for wrongful death cases is generally two years from the date of death.

Recovering Compensation on Behalf of Your Loved One

In a wrongful death lawsuit in Utah, potential damages that may be available to the beneficiaries typically fall into several categories, including:

  1. Economic Damages: These are tangible financial losses suffered by the surviving family members as a result of the death. Economic damages may include:
    • Loss of financial support: This encompasses the income, benefits, and financial contributions that the deceased person would have provided to their family members if they had not died.
    • Loss of services: This includes the value of household services, such as childcare, household maintenance, and other tasks that the deceased person would have performed.
    • Funeral and medical expenses: The costs associated with the deceased person's medical treatment and funeral arrangements may be recovered in a wrongful death lawsuit.
  2. Non-Economic Damages: These damages compensate the surviving family members for intangible losses that are not directly financial in nature. Non-economic damages may include:
    • Loss of companionship and consortium: This refers to the emotional support, guidance, love, and affection that the deceased person would have provided to their family members if they had not died.
    • Pain and suffering: If the deceased person experienced pain and suffering before their death, or if their family members have suffered emotional distress as a result of the death, damages may be awarded to compensate for these losses.
    • Loss of parental guidance: In cases where the deceased person was a parent, damages may be available to compensate for the loss of parental guidance, care, and nurturing that their children would have received.
