Understanding what makes a wrongful death case
If someone's actions, including failure to act responsibly, lead to the death of another, there may be grounds for a civil wrongful death suit. A wrongful death suit is an effort for the family of the deceased to recover the monetary losses incurred as a result of the death (for instance, lost income).
The following are some situations that may lead to a wrongful death lawsuit:
- Employer does not follow established safety guidelines for equipment.
- Repair work on vehicle's brakes not road tested before owner reclaims vehicle, leading to a fatal car accident.
- Malfunctioning or missing safety equipment at construction site or heavy industry.
- A surgical error or prescription error.
