Wrongful Death Actions

The bottom line of a wrongful death case is that the loss of another person’s life was caused by someone who was being negligent. This can cover a wide range of circumstances, but here are some examples:

Medical Malpractice

If a person was undergoing a medical procedure, and simple procedures were not followed such as washing hands, this can be a cause of wrongful death. If the person being operated on contracted an infection due to unwashed hands, this was due to the negligence of the medical staff.

Premise Liability

If a person was on a company’s property and they failed to put up a caution sign around a wet floor, this can lead to wrongful death. If someone falls and hits their head just right, this can cause death. If their death was not instantaneous but happened later after being taken to the hospital, this is still a wrongful death case. If the company had just put the sign out, nothing would have happened.

Defective Products

If a company sold a product they knew was defective, this can be a case. If the defective product led to an electric shock or started a fire that caused a life to be lost, then you have a case.

Reckless Driving

As mentioned at the start of the page, if someone chooses to text and drive, then this can be a wrongful death case should they cause an accident where someone is killed by their actions.
