Common Causes of a Wrongful Death
If you’ve lost a loved one in a tragic accident, the at-fault party should be held responsible for damages. While your suffering from a spouse or relative’s wrongful death cannot be justified by financial payment, your entitlement to recovering compensation may be necessary to cover loss of income, medical bills, funeral and burial costs, and your anguish. Common causes of wrongful death cases include the following:
Our attorneys know how to find out the cause of wrongful death in a vehicular accident and who is responsible. If the cause is a defective part of the vehicle, then the automobile company may be liable for damages. Truck accidents that result in a person’s death may hold the trucking company responsible if the driver breaks trucking regulations.
Emergency Room Medical Malpractice
A wrongful death lawsuit can come about from negligence in an emergency room by the doctors, nurses, or other hospital workers. Malpractice cases may include doctors performing surgical errors, prematurely discharging a patient while they still require treatment, or misdiagnosing a patient’s health condition.
Slip and Fall Incidents
While it may not be the most common cause of a person’s death, a slip and fall accident can result in an injury that may end a person’s life immediately or shortly after. The impact of a concrete floor or metal railing on a person’s head can cause severe damage, including brain damage, which may be too drastic for a person to recover.
A person’s death in a medical facility may be the result of an anesthesiologist making a fatal error. If they administer a lethal dosage, that person fails in their professional responsibilities and may be held responsible for a patient’s death.
