Common Wrongful Death Causes

Wrongful death cases are filed every day in America. There are a number of reasons why someone would file this type of case. Factors leading to a wrongful death lawsuit usually have a few things in common. For one, the family may believe that the death of their loved one came as a result of someone behaving recklessly and without regard for other people’s safety. In some cases, there may be intent to harm or kill an individual.

Incidents where a gunman walks into a public building or classroom and opens fire on innocent people are among the most gruesome types of wrongful death cases. Whether the perpetrator is tried and convicted or not, families of the victims may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Civil lawsuits and criminal lawsuits are filed and held in separate courts of law.

Motor Vehicle Accidents occur every day in America but whenever someone is killed as a result of another’s negligence, the family of the victim will often seek to be compensated for those losses relating to the accident. If you’ve ever been hit by a drunk or distracted driver, you know how angry you become once you realize that the accident was completely avoidable. If only all drivers would pay attention to their driving, but many do not.

Medical malpractice has also become much more prevalent in the news. A medical practitioner who fails to perform his or her responsibilities to acceptable standards resulting in a patient’s death can be held liable. This has become a significant source of wrongful death cases in America. 90% of medical malpractice lawsuits claim that the defendant caused death or permanent injury to another through their negligence.

Product liability laws require that manufacturers, product designers, and distributors work to ensure that their products are safe for public use or consumption. Testing and guidelines are occasionally lessened in favor of getting a product to market. This can leave the public at risk. If there were no laws in place to protect consumers, many more manufacturers would skip testing altogether and none of us could be sure if our everyday products were safe enough for us.

Workplace accidents are on the rise. A dangerous work environment poses serious risks to workers. The most common workplace accidents are falls, burns, explosions, and equipment accidents. These cause many deaths each year and most often occur at manufacturing plants, construction sites, and mining operations.

Accidents on the job are often investigated to determine exactly what happened and who was at fault. OSHA standards require that certain safety features be in place at a work site. Employers must take reasonable measures to protect their workers.
