What Is Considered a Wrongful Death? 

A wrongful death claim can be filed after a victim who would otherwise be able to file a personal injury claim is killed due to negligence.

Wrongful deaths can occur when:

  • A victim is intentionally killed
  • A victim dies as a result of medical malpractice, which includes a failure to diagnose
  • A victim is killed in a car accident
  • A victim is killed in a workplace accident

Generally, a wrongful death claim can arise out of any personal injury accident, although wrongful deaths that arise from a work accident may be handled through the workers’ compensation system.

Our skilled wrongful death and personal injury lawyers have more than four decades of experience helping families recover damages after their loved one’s death. We’ve helped families recover damages including medical costs, funeral and burial costs, loss of the victim’s future earnings, and the loss of a loved one’s society and companionship.

Common Types of Wrongful Death Cases 

Some of the most common wrongful death cases are also the most common accidents that can result in personal injury lawsuits.

Car Accident Fatalities and Legal Recourse

More than 90 people die in car accidents every day, and more than 6 million car accidents occur in the U.S. every year. Car accidents can be caused by speeding, drunk driving, reckless or distracted driving, auto defects, and construction activity. One of the most dangerous types of car accidents are rollovers, which occur when a car rolls onto its side or roof, pinning passengers beneath the car.

Truck Accidents Leading to Wrongful Death

Truck accidents are known to cause serious injuries and fatalities due to their massive size and weight. Unfortunately, when trucks are involved in accidents with other passenger vehicles, it’s typically those in the passenger vehicles that suffer from the most injuries or deaths. Truck accidents can be caused by overweight loads, truck company negligence, driver fatigue, drunk driving, and more.

Motorcycle Accidents: Seeking Justice for Victims

Motorcyclists are at high risk of getting into accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries because they’re not protected in the way drivers of cars are, allowing for a greater force impact. Motorcyclists can also easily be hidden in drivers’ blind spots, which is dangerous when cars need to change lanes.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

While laws vary by state, most wrongful death lawsuits can be filed by a spouse on behalf of their deceased spouse. Parents of minors may also file a lawsuit, and minors can collect compensation after the death of a parent. Some laws are stricter when the parents of adult children want to file a lawsuit. Typically, the more distant the relationship to the victim is, the more difficult it is to file a wrongful death claim.
