4 Common Wrongful Death Cases

The wrongful death of a loved one causes many kinds of hardships. These include the pain of grief, the financial burdens of medical bills and funeral costs, and the loss of future financial support from the loved one. Contacting experienced wrongful death attorneys is an important first step in getting relief from these burdens in the form of financial compensation. Wrongful death lawsuits include the following four types of circumstances:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Riding in a motor vehicle is a necessity of life for most people. When on the road, one’s physical well-being is vulnerable to the actions of other motorists, many of whom are distracted, drowsy, intoxicated, reckless, or are otherwise impaired or negligent. Because so many people are exposed to this risk, most wrongful death lawsuits arise from motor vehicle accidents.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors, nurses, and other health care providers are human and can make mistakes. However, the consequences of their mistakes are often more serious than those of other professionals. Negligence, cutting corners, and not following proper procedures are inexcusable and can result in a wrong diagnosis, surgical mistake, improper treatment, delayed treatment, and pharmaceutical mistakes.

Defective Products

We rely on the products we use to function properly. When they don’t, the consequences can mean more than losing the money of its purchase. Defective products can harm the user in a number of ways such as electrical shock, poisoning, mechanical injury, harmful side effects of drugs, and motor vehicle malfunction from defective components.

Workplace Fatalities

The pressure to cut costs and increase productivity can cause employers to overlook safety measures or otherwise expose their employees to substantial risk. Employees are sometimes exposed to danger because of the employer’s negligence such as failure to adequately maintain machines and equipment or to remove obvious safety hazards.

If you have lost a loved one because of the reckless, deliberate, or negligent actions of another, Mike Lewis Attorneys can help. Contact us for a free consultation without obligation.
