When Is a Wrongful Death Claim Applicable?

In a way, every death feels like a wrongful death. Families may feel that the fatality of a loved one is unfair and wrong. However not every situation is a wrongful death.

Do You Have a Wrongful Death Claim?


 

Examples of Wrongful Death Claims

A wrongful death claim may be applicable in various situations:

  • Medical malpractice. If a patient does not receive adequate levels of care in the hospital, and dies as a result, or if a doctor fails to diagnose a dangerous condition or treat it correctly, survivors may have grounds for a wrongful death claim.
  • Car accident and vehicle accidents. One of the more common types of wrongful death claims occurs from a vehicle accident.
  • Workplace accidents. In some cases, but not all, workplace accidents can lead to wrongful death claims — especially if the fatality occurred as a result of safety violations.
  • Violence and homicide. If someone intentionally kills someone else, they may find themselves facing a lawsuit. Similarly, if someone is abusive or accidentally kills someone in the performance of an unlawful act, such as a mugging, they too may face a civil claim.
  • Premises liability issues. If a property owner is negligent in providing a safe area for visitors, he or she may find themselves facing a wrongful death claim if a fatality results. For example, if a restaurant owner is negligent in providing a safe dining area and a visitor is killed because a balcony collapses, the restaurant owner may face a wrongful death claim.
  • Defective products. If dangerous household products cause a fatality, manufacturers may face lawsuits or even class actions from people whose loved ones have been killed by a poorly designed or manufactured product.
