Common Causes of Wrongful Death
Any accident that leads to a fatality can be classified as a wrongful death case, even if the legal statutes that govern different accidents vary from case to case. Common causes of accidental death that can provide grounds for a wrongful death claim include:
- Medical malpractice, such as surgery errors that cause death
- Vehicle accidents
- Poisoning and dosage accidents
- Product liability issues, from defective products to unclear or missing warning labels
- Slips, falls, and workplace accidents
- Hazardous material accidents
- Nursing home accidents
Depending on where and how your accident occurred, you will have to identify the at-fault party and gather evidence to show how their negligence, reckless actions, or dangerous inaction led to your loved one’s death.
Many businesses carry workers’ compensation plans that contain clauses and provisions for wrongful death cases. The same applies to many hospitals, schools, public spaces, product/device manufacturers, and more. Accidents are never planned, but there may be multiple insurance policies that you can use for compensation. Our accidental death attorneys in Palm Beach Gardens, FL will investigate your case to determine who was at fault for the wrongful death that occurred, who their insurer is, how much you may be entitled to in compensation, and what kinds of evidence you will need to build a case, submit a claim, and win a settlement.
