Maine, like most other states, considers the responsibilities of both the person who died (the "decedent") and the person who the wrongful death suit claims is responsible (the "defendant" in the suit).
An examination of the decedent's responsibility may include the following questions:
- Did they seek prompt and appropriate medical attention?
- Did their own actions or negligence contribute to their death (for example, a passenger killed in a car accident who got in a vehicle with a drunk driver)?
An examination of the defendant's responsibility may include questions such as:
- Would the death have occurred without his or her actions or negligence?
- Could the defendant be expected to recognize the potential risk of his or her action?
We can help you sort out all the questions and get the justice you deserve. We often find and pursue negligence that others have overlooked and therefore successfully win compensation for clients and their families.
