Victim of Wrongful Death Cases?
Too often, the death of a loved one occurs because of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. When this happens, the victim’s family has the ability to file a wrongful death lawsuit in order to seek compensation for both monetary and non-monetary losses as a result of the victim’s death.
These cases cannot be defined as accidents because the person at fault did not act in an appropriate matter or take precautions to avoid the situation.
Instead, these cases are a result of negligence, which is the failure to use ordinary care. Do you think a loved one was the victim of negligence resulting in a wrongful death?
Here are three types of wrongful death cases.
1. Car Accidents
One of the most common types of wrongful death suits stems from car accidents. There are many factors that cause the driver to be negligent, including distracted driving, texting or talking on the phone while driving, speeding, roadway issues, drunk driving, driving while impaired, drowsy driving and more. These actions are all subject to a wrongful death case.
2. Motorcycle Accidents
In addition to car accidents, motorcycle accidents are extremely common types of wrongful death cases. Too often, these cases are a result of sideswipes, head-on collisions, rear-end accidents, accidents caused by changing lanes or merging and more.
Also, wrongful death cases that involve motorcycles can occur even if there isn’t a collision. In this case, a driver’s negligence can cause a motorcyclist to swerve in order to avoid a car and crash.
3. Medical Malpractice
Whenever a loved one is going in for a medical procedure, we hope they are safe and well looked after. However, despite the training and experience of medical professionals, medical negligence occurs often in hospitals, doctors’ offices, outpatient facilities and more.
Examples of these fatal errors include surgical mistakes, misdiagnoses, pharmaceutical errors, birthing injuries, defective medical devices and more.
