Common Causes of Wrongful Death
Wrongful death cases can stem from various circumstances, and understanding the common causes is crucial when seeking legal recourse. Some common causes of wrongful death may include:
- Medical Malpractice: When healthcare professionals fail to deliver the standard of care expected, resulting in the death of a patient, it may constitute medical malpractice. This can include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication mistakes, and more.
- Car Accidents: Negligent drivers can cause fatal accidents on Monroe's roads. Our legal team can help you pursue justice for your loved one's wrongful death, whether it's reckless driving, drunk driving, or distracted driving.
- Workplace Accidents: If your loved one suffered a fatal injury while on the job due to unsafe working conditions or employer negligence, you may have a wrongful death claim against their employer.
- Product Liability: Defective products can lead to tragic consequences. Manufacturers, distributors, or retailers may be held accountable for wrongful deaths caused by their products.
- Premises Liability: Property owners have a duty to maintain a safe environment. Wrongful deaths can occur when negligent property maintenance leads to fatal accidents, such as slip and falls or inadequate security measures.
- Criminal Acts: If your loved one's death resulted from a criminal act, you may have the right to seek compensation through a wrongful death claim, even if the perpetrator is facing criminal charges separately.
What Damages Could Be Recovered From Wrongful Death Claims?
When pursuing a wrongful death claim, it's important to understand the potential damages you may be entitled to. While no amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one, the settlement can help ease the financial burden that often is associated with such tragedy. Some types of damages may include on your behalf:
- Economic Damages
- Non-Economic Damages
- Punitive Damages
- Legal Expenses
- Property Damage
