By carefully evaluating the events surrounding your family member’s death, wrongful death attorneys can help you navigate these questions, and compile the strongest case possible to get the best outcome possible under the circumstances
Common causes of wrongful death include but aren’t limited to:
Car and truck accidents are caused by careless reckless or impaired driving or a part of the vehicle malfunctioning. Drivers are responsible for doing everything necessary to keep pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers around them safe. When a driver is inebriated or speeding, and that these actions lead to the death of another, a wrongful death claim may be brought.
Sometimes a bad outcome in medicine is unavoidable or justifiable if the doctor did everything they could. For a claim to be legitimate, a lawyer would find evidence that the appropriate standard of care was not met.
Toxic food products or other defective pcan cause horrible accidents and death. Any company making such products has a responsibility to ensure that products are safe for use, and to prove that this responsibility was neglected, a lawyer would gather evidence of negligence on the part of the manufacturer.
