Wrongful Death Claims

When someone dies because of the malpractice, negligence, or inaction of another individual, the family and/or loved ones of the victim can file wrongful death claims against the party held liable legally.

Granted, there is nothing that can bring back the deceased family members. However, holding the party or individual negligent liable for wrongful actions can offer a measure of some solace.

Wrongful deaths can be caused by a host of accidents or events. The most typical causes of wrongful death can entail the use of defective products, auto accidents, construction accidents, and medical malpractice.

If a party acts recklessly, negligently, with a complete disregard for the safety of other individuals, or even with intent to kill or harm, and a person dies due to these actions, the fatality may be deemed wrongful. It is possible, in such instances, to hold liable legally the party responsible for his or her actions.

Motorists have a duty to exercise caution while operating passenger motor vehicles, to obey the rules in driving, according to the conditions, drive safely, and to be vigilant of other pedestrians and motorists.

If a family member was killed in a passenger motor vehicle accident, it may be possible to file wrongful death claims against the party at-fault.

A wrongful death attorney with experience can help make certain that your rights are protected, as well as advise any course of action to acquire an effective case resolution.

Medical Malpractice Wrongful Death

If a healthcare practitioner neglects to fulfill his or her responsibilities to the accepted standard of care, and as a result, causes death or injury to a patient, then the party held liable legally can be at-fault.

Every year in the United States, medical malpractice results in an immense number of wrongful deaths.

Collected by the United States Department of Justice, according to statistics, over 90% of all lawsuits pertaining to medical malpractice brought forth involve a plaintiff who made the claim that the defendant was the cause of debilitating, permanent injury, or death.

Manufacturers, product designers, and distributors, under product liability law, have a responsibility to make certain that the products they sell and make for the public are safe. Distributors and product designers, unfortunately, will neglect on occasion to test rigorously their products to ensure that they are acceptable for sale in public.

If a product is considered poor due to design defect, a marketing defect, or a manufacturing defect, and an individual gets killed as a result, there is a likelihood to hold liable legally that party, regardless of whether the party acted negligently, or not.

Hazardous work environments can pose to employees a severe risk.

Workplace accidents like burns, explosions, falls, and equipment mishaps cause a number of deaths every year in settings that include manufacturing plants, construction sites, and mining operations.

If an employee gets killed on a worksite due to the negligence of an employer, or disregard for the safety of employees, wrongful death claims can be filed against the at-fault party.
