Wrongful death occurs when companies or individuals are negligent or either of these are found to have misconduct in their duties to others. These include car accidents, medical malpractice, occupational accidents and others. Statutes are in place for every state to establish procedures for bringing actions against the responsible party or parties; in this case, it is called a Wrongful Death Statute. These statutes list the proper litigants allowed to file suit in a wrongful death, including survivors such as spouses, children, parents and siblings among others. Wrongful death attorneys experienced in these lawsuits are able to walk clients through the essential details of your case to bring optimum results.

Four main causes of wrongful death are medical malpractice (resulting in death), vehicle or public transportation accidents (such as airplane or trains), work related injuries (including exposure to hazardous substances), and possibly deaths during supervised activities. The death must be caused by negligence, causing financial, physical and/or emotional loss for the victim's survivors. In order to file a wrongful death case, you must be entitled to sue according to your state's laws.

If you lost a loved one due to one of the causes described above, it is important to contact an experienced Wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. Wrongful death lawyers experienced in wrongful deaths know how to assist you in gathering all necessary information and bring it to litigation. READ MORE
