Common situations involving wrongful death

On Behalf of | Apr 24, 2023 | Wrongful Death |

Navigating through a wrongful death case is a complicated process. Many may think of a car accident as the main cause. While these are encounters that frequently involve negligence, it is important to remember that any situation may qualify as a wrongful death with the proper evidence.

Anyone faced with the loss of a loved one may wish to investigate further and determine whether pursuing a wrongful death case is a proper course of action.

Motor vehicle accident deaths

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were more than 35,000 fatal crashes in the United States in 2020. Any one of these may have resulted from reckless driving, failure to maintain a lane or other negligent traffic violations.

Defective products

The word product is a broad term but refers to anything from children’s high chairs to medical devices like pacemakers or defibrillators. Even in car accidents, it may not be a negligent driver—it may be defective brakes that lead to fatal tragedy.

Industrial machinery

Workplace equipment needs to perform under repetitive action and sometimes industrial levels of strain. In a catastrophic accident, employees or even visitors and pedestrians risk serious injury or death because of the physical forces at play.

Losing a loved one often leaves people scrambling emotionally and financially. Pursuing a wrongful death case may feel like another stressful task to stack on top of everything going on. However, there are resources and information available to anyone who feels they may have lost their loved one to a situation involving wrongful death.
