Wrongful Death

Preserving the Evidence

One of the most important aspects of a successful case is having the evidence to support your claim. This evidence allows you to fulfill your burden of proof during a wrongful death claim and you or your attorney must take steps to preserve the evidence of the defendant’s fault, as well as any exculpatory evidence you may find along the way. Evidence is any information, factors, or items that may indicate that a claim is valid. Evidence can take many forms and can include but is not limited to medical records, police or accident reports including photographs and eyewitness reports, black box data, cell phone records, Coroner’s reports, or death certificates.

Preservation can take many forms including writing down any information that you can remember regarding the wrongful death, keeping and requesting all medical records. Your attorney will also help you ensure that the other party is preserving any evidence they might have access to. It is important to get an attorney to do this immediately, even during the grieving process.

I need to tell you how great it was for Attorney Jami Oliver to handle my case. First she listened to what the situation that I was facing.... She educated me on what the chances were as far as possible success as well as pitfalls that could disrupt that success. She was very honest as far as letting us know the chances of winning versus losing. It was a difficult case, and she still educated us as to what our options were and how the process worked. She instructed us on what to say as well as what not to say. Sometimes you need to talk and other times not talk. She believed in us and fought for us. You can't go wrong to hire her the staff that compliments her strengths. John Zimmerread more
