Recklessness and Negligence in Wrongful Death Claims
Recklessness and negligence are legal terms that define the intent of the person who wrongfully caused the death. Recklessness and negligence are both intentional acts, which means that the person who behaved in a reckless or negligent manner intended their act with a level of disregard for human life.
Reckless behavior is performing an unreasonable action with disregard for the potential and known or obvious risks involved. In a wrongful death claim, the plaintiff is the person who has lost a loved one; the defendant is the person who cause the death. A lawsuit is a claim for damages resulting from the wrongful death. A claim need not prove a death, but in order to be awarded damages, the claim has to be upheld by the courts. During a trial for recklessly causing a death, the court (or jury) will look for evidence that proves that the defendant was reckless, the he or she acted intentionally and with disregard for the risk involved, and that the risks either were known or were so obvious that they should have been known to exist.
