When someone’s death results from the careless, intentionally harmful, or negligent actions of another person, the victim’s surviving family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit. In this type of legal action, they can seek compensation for their losses after their loved one’s death with the help of an experienced attorney.
Common Wrongful Death Causes
Wrongful death cases most frequently involve the following:
- An automobile crash,
- Exposure to chemicals or other hazardous materials,
- Medical malpractice, and
- Falling incident on unsafe premises.
While these are common causes of wrongful death, a family can file a claim after losing someone in other ways as well. If you’re unsure whether your loss qualifies as wrongful death, the best thing to do is to speak with an experienced lawyer right away.
