  • Breached That Duty
    According to the evidence and details surrounding the case, the defendant failed to fulfill his or her established duty of care.
  • Showed Causation
    An accident occurred as a result of the defendant’s breach of duty.
  • Damages Resulted
    Your loved one died as a result of the accident caused by the defendant.
