3 Common Wrongful Death Claims

Wrongful death cases come with a lot of heartbreak for the demised family member’s loved ones. Accidents that result in death unfortunately happen all the time as a result of another person’s negligence. No amount of money can ever fix the death of a loved one, but it financially helps. The grief-stricken family has every right to receive compensation for their family member’s death. When they win the case, they can receive compensation for things such as medical bills and funeral expenses. Here are 3 common wrongful death claims that are made often.

Motor Vehicle Accident

Vehicle accidents occur every single day. Though many accidents only result in injury, there are many cases where one or more people pass away. The family of the demised loved one, will most likely file suit against the other driver. A few common reasons for deadly motor vehicle accidents include reckless driving, intoxication, lack of driving experience, and visual or physical impairment.

Medical Malpractice 

Wrongful death claims because of medical malpractice are very common. When a patient visits their doctor, they hope to receive accurate information pertaining to their current state of health. There are many incidents where a doctor misdiagnoses or fails to properly diagnose a patient at all. Common medial ailments such as heart disease and cancer are often overlooked by some doctors. By the time the patient realizes they are ill or seeks a second opinion, it may be too late to receive treatment. The patient’s family can sue the doctor for improper diagnose to receive compensation for medical bills and the loss of their loved one.

Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents happen more commonly for manual labor workers than any other job. This does not mean an accidental death could not take place at a less demanding job. Workplace deaths can result from faulty machinery, heavy fallen objects, or even a slip or fall accident. Family members will usually sue the company for lack of care of the facility or machinery that caused the death of their loved one.
