How Negligence Can Cause Wrongful Deaths

A wrongful death can occur almost anywhere, and the negligence that causes these deaths can come in a number of different forms. In fact, when negligence arises, wrongful deaths can result from:

  • Traffic accidents – From auto accidents to motorcycle and truck accidents, negligence on the roads commonly causes fatal collisions. In fact, more than 90 percent of traffic accidents are caused by some type of human, and when these accidents are fatal, driver negligence is to blame the vast majority of the time. Additionally, however, manufacturer negligence (resulting in deadly equipment malfunctions) and other forms of negligence can also contribute to traffic accidents and wrongful deaths.
  • Recreational accidents – These accidents, which can include watercraft accidents, ATV accidents and even amusement park accidents, are also commonly caused by negligence, such as the negligence of an equipment operator or an equipment/ride manufacturer.
  • Accidents caused by dangerous premises – When retail settings, private residences or even public facilities are not properly built or maintained, the negligence of a landlord, property manager or building owner can be to blame and can lead to fatal falls or other fatal accidents on these unsafe premises.
  • Other accidents – From work accidents to accidents that are caused by faulty consumer or medical products, these other accidents also commonly arise from negligence and can result in life-threatening injuries.

Wrongful Death Compensation

At Bell & Pollock, P.C., our lawyers are aware that there is no sum of money that will ever compensate for the wrongful death of a loved one. We also understand, however, that the compensation from these cases can be pivotal to helping families get through such difficult times.

While the compensation from a wrongful death case will vary according to the details of the case (such as the type of negligence involved), generally, these financial recoveries can include damages for:

  • Medical bills related to emergency care for the decedent
  • Burial and funeral costs
  • Future lost earnings due to the untimely death
  • The loss of consortium (i.e., companionship)
  • Pain and suffering caused by the death.

Additional compensation can be available in some cases, so it is important to contact an experienced wrongful death lawyer to find out more about your potential entitlements following a wrongful death.
