What is a Wrongful Death?
A wrongful death is defined as a death caused by the negligence or intentional act of another person, company or entity. Examples of a wrongful death include medical malpractice, car accidents, workplace accidents and more. In the United States, wrongful death can be both a criminal and civil matter.
If you believe that your loved one’s death was caused by another person or company’s negligence, you may be able to seek justice through a wrongful death claim. You will need to provide evidence (such as witness testimony and police reports) that establishes negligence on behalf of the other party. It is important to note that each state has its own set of laws regarding wrongful death claims. So it is recommended that you consult our experienced lawyers who are familiar with the specific laws in your state before filing a claim.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is a complex and heartbreaking legal issue that can arise when a person dies due to the negligence or misconduct of another. The circumstances surrounding wrongful deaths vary widely, but some categories are more common than others. The most frequent causes of wrongful death include medical malpractice, vehicle accidents, and workplace accidents.
Medical malpractice takes place when a healthcare professional fails to provide an acceptable standard of care, resulting in serious injury or death. Vehicle accidents may be caused by speeding, distracted driving, drunk driving, or other negligent behaviors. Workplace accidents usually occur due to inadequate safety protocols or dangerous working conditions.
Other potential causes of wrongful death include defective products such as consumer goods and pharmaceuticals, criminal activities including homicide and assault, and inadequate security such as in apartment buildings and parking garages.
If you have lost a loved one to wrongful death, it is important to seek legal advice from an experienced lawyer who can help you explore your legal options. A qualified attorney from our law firm will be able to advise you on whether or not you may be entitled to financial compensation for the tragedy. With our help, you may be able to obtain much-needed closure, justice, and peace of mind.
What Damages Can I Recover Through a Wrongful Death Claim?
In an effort to make the surviving family members of a deceased victim who was wrongfully killed whole, courts may award damages as part of a wrongful death claim. These awards are intended to cover financial losses that were caused by the death itself and can include:
● Funeral and burial expenses
● Medical costs incurred prior to the death
● Loss of wages and other benefits that would have been provided by the decedent had they lived
● Pain and suffering endured by both the decedent and his/her survivors
● Loss of companionship, guidance, or care
● Punitive damages designed to punish wrongdoers for their intentional or grossly negligent actions
