What Does Wrongful Death Look Like?
Wrongful death claims arise in situations where a loved one is lost due to the negligence or wrongful act of someone else. There are many types of wrongful death cases, but let’s look at a few:
- Impaired Driver – If someone is impaired by drugs or alcohol and they crash into and kill your loved one, they could be sued for wrongful death. Also, anyone who continued to serve them after they were already visibly intoxicated could also be held liable. This includes bar tenders and servers.
- Workplace Incidents – If your loved one worked around dangerous equipment or hazardous materials and was not provided proper safety equipment, and subsequently was injured or became ill, the company may be liable.
- Medical Malpractice – If your loved one was treated below an acceptable standard of medical care by a doctor or other medical professional and you think it caused their death, you could have both a medical malpractice and a wrongful death case.
- Faulty Products – If your loved one was killed when they used or consumed a faulty product, the manufacturer could be held liable. These cases usually revolve around a product that was poorly designed, had a manufacturing error, or was improperly labeled (including pharmaceuticals).
These are just a few ways that wrongful death cases come up. If you suspect your loved one died because of negligence or a wrongful act, you should seek legal advice before moving forward. These cases can be difficult to prove without help.
If successful, you could gain compensation for the deceased earning capacity as well as other care they would have provided to your family through income. Other intangibles are also eligible for compensation, such as the loss of love, companionship, and care your loved one provided.
