When it comes to wrongful death, you have two legal options. The first is to press charges and pursue a criminal case. If you suspect malicious intent, choose this avenue. If the defendant is guilty, he or she may serve prison time or pay exorbitant fines.
In civil litigation, the defendant is not charged with a crime. Instead, the court determines an amount of restitution to be paid to the bereaved family. You will want to hire a Minneapolis wrongful death law firm for this legal battle. In some cases, you may be able to take both criminal and civil action.
