Pursuing Wrongful Death Compensation

The sudden death of an individual can have repercussions across a whole family. Loved ones of the deceased have to deal with grief while helping immediate family members navigate their new economic circumstances. If a loved one's fatal accident was because of someone's negligence, activity, mistake or lack of judgment, the immediate family of the deceased could file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Wrongful Death Causes

Some examples of wrongful deaths are those brought about by accidents and injuries involving:

  • Defective products — for example, faulty brakes on a car
  • Motor vehicle accidents — due to someone else's negligence or actions
  • Medical malpractice — such as a surgical mistake
  • Someone else's criminal activity — for example, being fatally wounded during a robbery
  • Construction site accidents — leading to a catastrophic work site injury
  • Excessive force by law enforcement agents

No matter how your loved one died unexpectedly, it can be reassuring to know that a successful wrongful death claim or lawsuit can bring your family relief. Prompt legal counsel after an accidental death is important to give your lawyer the best chances of building a successful case.
