You don’t have the time or the energy to deal with the potential legal complexities related to a wrongful death. Such cases require extensive legal experience and knowledge, especially since those who are at fault are often represented by expensive corporate lawyers who earn their salaries by trying to tear apart cases just like yours.

Wrongful Death Cases We Handle
Wrongful death is somewhat unique in that it is actually a very broad category. In addition to understanding how to handle the wrongful death aspects of the case, you also have to understand the legal aspects of the accident that led up to the death. Some of the wrongful death cases we have experience with include:
- Motor vehicle accidents: Some of the most common wrongful death cases can involve cars, motorcycles, or commercial vehicles like trucks and buses. Many fatal accidents only occur because someone was acting negligently or recklessly. That can include those driving under the influence, speeding, or engaging in distracted driving. It may also include faulty parts, improper maintenance, or poorly maintained roads.
- Bicycle accidents: Those riding bicycles are at greater risk for serious injuries or death when in an accident because they lack the same kind of protection other vehicles have. Whether it’s the fault of a driver, a roadway, or an animal attack, when someone is fatally harmed on a bicycle, there is often another party at fault.
- Pedestrian accidents: Like bicyclists, pedestrians are at a greater risk for death when involved in an accident. Many drivers fail to yield the right of way at crosswalks or intersections for various reasons, causing fatal harm to pedestrians.
- Slips, falls, and other premises liability accidents: Businesses and individuals have a duty to keep their property in a safe condition for those who visit. If they don’t, and someone dies as a result, the owner may be at fault.
- Nursing home negligence: Nursing homes are meant to be a safe place to help the elderly and infirm, but often, corners are cut, with deadly consequences.
- Medical malpractice: When doctors make mistakes, they can fail their patients with truly tragic consequences. Possible errors can include misdiagnosis, errors in surgery, a failure to treat, and prescribing the wrong medication.
- Defective medical products: The drugs you take and medical devices you use should make you better. When the products are defective, they can lead to death, and that death is on the hands of the manufacturers.
- Toxic exposure: Whether it’s asbestos in the walls, fumes from a factory, chemicals in the water, or pesticides on the ground, if someone dies because of exposure to dangerous toxins, it’s important to find out who is responsible.
- Accidents in the workplace: The workplace can be a very dangerous place, no matter the type of work. It’s easy to slip, for things to fall, or for machines to malfunction when the premises and objects aren’t properly secured and maintained.
- Acts of violence: If someone dies as the result of a murder, robbery, or other violent act, those who committed the crime can be punished beyond the prison cell. They can be forced to provide monetary compensation to those they harmed.
- Animal attacks: When someone’s pet attacks, the fault lies with the owner. If that pet’s attack leads to the death of the victim, the owner must be held accountable.
As you can see, these wrongful death cases are very diverse, but one fact is true in all of them: someone has been fatally harmed because another individual did not act appropriately. In each of the above cases, we can get compensation for the family of the victim.
