Seeking Justice for a Wrongful Death
Civil Lawsuits in Murder or Homicide Cases in
Losing a loved one is always a devastating and traumatic experience, and
if this loss is only compounded by the fact that someone committed a heinous
crime, we at
The Evans Firm in
Centennial, CO are ready to fight for justice on your loved one's behalf. For families
who have lost someone dear to them through the commission of a crime, a civil lawsuit for an intentional tort can be one way of pursuing justice.
While in the criminal trial, the responsible person has to be proven guilty
beyond a reasonable doubt, in a civil case, the person must be proven
guilty by a "preponderance of the evidence," a much lower burden
of proof. While a civil lawsuit might be filed after the criminal justice
system fails (remember the O.J. Simpson murder case), this
wrongful death lawsuit can be filed regardless of the outcome of a criminal trial. These separate
legal actions are not mutually exclusive.
Our skilled advocate is qualified to handle your
wrongful death case.

Our Wrongful Death Lawyer Takes a Trial-Centered Approach
We prepare our
wrongful death lawsuits to see trial; we don't aim to settle. This aggressive approach
enables us to pursue maximum compensation. While no monetary compensation
can undo your loss, as seek justice, we can also seek your financial recovery
to help you move forward.
In an intentional tort case, plaintiffs can be awarded compensation that includes:
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses
- Punitive damages
wrongful death cases, punitive damages can be exacted from guilty persons who were egregiously
negligent or who had committed a crime. This type of compensation is meant to penalize
the one responsible for the wrongful death, whereas the other types of
compensation are meant to help the victims' family to financial recovery.
