Understanding Wrongful Death
Wrongful death involves a statement against a person or an entity who can be held liable for a death. The statement is usually brought by the deceased’s surviving relatives. Filing a wrongful death claim or statement is not about attaching a monetary amount to a loved one’s death, but rather about holding the responsible individual or entity accountable for the mistakes that cost your loved one’s life.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, “There were 34,439 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2016 in which 37,461 deaths occurred. This resulted in 11.6 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.16 deaths per 100 million miles traveled.” As such, it is not surprising that vehicular accidents are among the most common wrongful death lawsuits causes, along with product malfunction, medical malpractice, and workplace catastrophes.
Meanwhile, some of the most dangerous occupations include airline pilots, roofers, steel workers, truck drivers farmers, mechanics and installers, construction laborers, and law enforcement officers.
With such dangerous surroundings and the scope of injury and death, the need for a wrongful death lawyer team is paramount.
