Most Common Causes of a Wrongful Death Personal Injury

Wrongful death occurs when a person dies due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional act of another party. Here are some of the most common causes of wrongful deaths:

Car Accidents

Car accidents are a leading cause of wrongful death, particularly when they involve speeding, distracted driving, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Medical Malpractice

Medical errors, such as misdiagnosis, surgical mistakes, or medication errors, can lead to wrongful death.

Product Liability

Defective products, such as faulty medical devices or dangerous consumer products, can cause fatal injuries.

Premises Liability

Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their premises in a safe condition and to address any hazards that could cause injury. Failure to do so can lead to wrongful death if someone is killed as a result.

Criminal Activity

Criminal acts, such as assault, murder, or negligent security can lead to wrongful death.

Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents, particularly in industries such as construction or manufacturing, can be fatal and may be caused by inadequate safety measures, faulty equipment, or negligence.

Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect

Neglect or abuse in nursing homes or other care facilities can result in wrongful death, particularly in cases of dehydration, malnutrition, or untreated medical conditions.

What to Do In a Wrongful Death Personal Injury Case

Losing a loved one due to wrongful death can be a devastating and traumatic experience. Every wrongful death case is unique and requires individual attention. Working with an experienced attorney can help ensure that your case is handled with care and expertise and that you receive the compensation and closure you deserve.

Here are some steps you can take if you believe you have a wrongful death case:

Contact a Personal Injury Attorney

Consult with an educated wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options, gather evidence, and build a strong case on your behalf.

Let Your Attorney Investigate the Circumstances of the Death

Your attorney can investigate the circumstances of the death to determine the cause and any contributing factors. This may involve gathering medical records, police reports, witness statements, and other evidence.

Document Your Damages

You may be entitled to fair compensation for your damages, which can include medical bills, funeral expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. Document all of your losses and expenses related to the death.

File a Wrongful Death Claim

In many wrongful death cases, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party. Your attorney can help you determine the best course of action and guide you through the legal process.

After completing the investigation, your attorney may send a demand letter to the defendant or their insurance company, outlining the damages you are seeking and offering to settle the case out of court. If they don’t agree to compensate you, then you can file a wrongful death lawsuit with your attorney’s help.

Negotiations for Personal Injury Cases

The defendant or their insurance company may respond to the demand letter with a counteroffer. Your attorney will negotiate with the other party to try to reach a settlement that is acceptable to both sides.

Pre-Trial Mediation

If the negotiations are unsuccessful, the parties may agree to participate in mediation, a process in which a neutral third party helps facilitate a settlement agreement. If this fails, the case may go to court.

Attend Trial Hearings and Depositions

You may be required to attend hearings and depositions as part of the legal process. Your attorney can prepare you for these events and represent you in court.
