A Tragedy That Should Not Have Happened

There is one similarity that wrongful death cases share – the death should never have happened in the first place. However, that is often where the similarities end. Wrongful death cases arise in many different ways, too many to list here. Today, we will go over the basics of these cases as well as the most common causes.

  • Always speak with a qualified attorney before making any decisions about your particular case.

Wrongful death cases arise when the willful, careless, or negligent actions of an individual, company, or entity cause the death of another person. Some of the most common causes of these cases include:

  • Vehicle Accidents – During Ohio’s latest reporting year, there were 1,094 traffic-crash fatalities. Many of these deaths were due to negligent driving behavior such as drinking and driving, distracted driving, speeding, and other reckless actions.
  • Workplace Incidents – While most work incidents are covered by workers’ compensation, there are times when the extreme negligence of an employer or other party needs to be held accountable. Employers must provide workers with the training and equipment they need to do their jobs properly.
  • Defective Products – Hundreds of faulty products are recalled each year and many of them cause fatalities in both adults and children. Companies and manufacturers should be held accountable when their carelessness or negligence causes a death.
  • Medical Mistakes–You may have heard that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the country, killing around 250,000 people each year. These deaths are often caused by surgical mistakes, medication errors, misdiagnosis, infections, and more.
  • Criminal Activity – Wrongful death cases are civil cases, but they may be closely related to a criminal case. When someone loses their life due to the criminal activity of another person, a wrongful death lawsuit may be appropriate.
