What Causes A Wrongful Death Case To Arise?

There are many ways in which wrongful death cases arise. Today, we will go over some of the most common causes, but we want to stress that this is not a complete list. You should always speak with an attorney regarding your particular case.

Wrongful death cases arise when a person is killed due to the negligence of another person, company, or entity of some sort. They are brought by surviving family members or the estate of the deceased. In many cases, there is also a criminal case ongoing related to the death, but please note that there does not have to be a criminal case in order for there to be a wrongful death case.

  • Vehicle Accidents – For the latest reporting year in Ohio, there were 1,179 people killed in traffic crashes. Many of these fatalities were caused by extreme driver negligence, including impaired and distracted driving.
  • Workplace Accidents – Workplace fatalities often occur because employers fail to provide their workers with the training and equipment necessary to do their jobs. Other times, employers know about but fail to address unsafe working conditions.
  • Product Liability – Companies and manufacturers release hundreds of faulty products to the market each year. They should be held accountable if a consumer dies due to using or consuming a defective product.
  • Medical Mistakes – Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in this country, according to researchers. They kill approximately 250,000 people each year and are caused in a variety of ways, including diagnosing mistakes, birth injuries, medication errors, surgical mistakes, delayed treatment, and more.
  • Criminal Activity – If a death occurs due to a person’s criminal activity, whether they intentionally or unintentionally caused the death, the suspect can be held liable for wrongful death.
