What does “wrongful death” mean, and when might you need legal representation?

What is Wrongful Death?

In legal terms, wrongful death refers to a death caused by the negligence or misconduct of another person or entity. Essentially, it means that the death would not have occurred if not for the irresponsible actions of another.

Examples of Wrongful Death Cases:

  1. Medical Malpractice: If a healthcare professional fails to diagnose a condition or makes a grave error during surgery, leading to a patient’s death, this can be grounds for a wrongful death claim.
  2. Automobile Accidents: Deaths resulting from a car accident where another driver was at fault, be it from drunk driving, distracted driving, or violating traffic laws.
  3. Product Malfunctions: If a product, such as a defective airbag or faulty appliance, malfunctions and results in death, the manufacturer can be held liable.
  4. Workplace Incidents: Employers are responsible for ensuring the safety of their employees. If they fail in this duty, and a worker dies as a result, it might be a wrongful death scenario.
