Automobile Accident Overview
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were more than 42,000 traffic fatalities in the United States in 2006. Motorists have an obligation to exercise caution while operating motor vehicles, obey the rules of the road, drive safely according to the conditions, and to be mindful of other motorists and pedestrians. If a loved one was killed in a motor vehicle accident, it may be possible to file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party. An experienced wrongful death attorney can help ensure that your rights are protected as well as advise a course of action to obtain a successful case resolution.
If a medical practitioner fails to perform his or her duties to the accepted standard of care, and as a result, causes injury or death to a patient, then the liable party can be held accountable. Medical malpractice causes a significant number of wrongful deaths in the United States every year. According to statistics gathered by the U.S. Department of Justice, more than 90 percent of all medical malpractice lawsuits brought forth involve a plaintiff who has claimed the defendant caused a death or permanent, and debilitating injury.
Medical, Surgical and Orthopedic Device Malfunction
Under product liability law, manufacturers, distributors, and product designers have an obligation to ensure the products they make and sell are safe for the public. Unfortunately, product designers and distributors will occasionally neglect to rigorously test their products to see that they are acceptable for public sale. If a product suffers from a design defect, a manufacturing defect, or a marketing defect (customers are not made aware of a potentially harmful risk, for example), and a person is killed as a result, it is possible to hold the liable party accountable, regardless of whether or not the party acted negligently.
On the Job Accidents, Workers Compensation, Mesothelioma
Dangerous work environments can pose a serious risk to employees. Workplace accidents such as falls, explosions, burns, and equipment accidents cause numerous deaths every year in environments including construction sites, manufacturing plants, and mining operations. If an employee is killed on a work site as a result of an employer’s negligence or disregard for employee safety, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed.
If you have lost a loved one, there is no monetary compensation that can bring them back. However, you do deserve a sense of justice.
