Losing a loved one is such a saddening and harsh reality to handle but it becomes more traumatizing when your loved one lost her (or his) life unexpectedly due to another’s negligent act.
A wrongful death lawyer can help if your loved one’s wrongful death was caused due to various negligent acts, such as an unintentional injury, a slip and fall accident, a motor vehicle accident, a faulty product, an unintentional poisoning or drowning. According to a 2010 study conducted by the Center for Disease Control, there are about 120,000 people who died due to an unintentional injury or accident, which makes it the 5th leading reason for death in the United States. Motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle, car, and truck accidents are the highest cause of wrongful deaths by unintentional injuries, followed by unintentional falls and unintentional poisoning. Medical malpractice is another very common reason behind wrongful death, and causes approximately 98,000 deaths each year which makes it a 6th leading cause of wrongful deaths in the United States. Other causes behind wrongful death are considered criminal or intentional, and violent acts e.g. homicide.
