Accidents That Can Result in Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is a fatal accident that was the direct or indirect outcome of another person’s or company’s negligence or misconduct. Generally, if a person could have filed a personal injury claim for the accident, had he or she survived, then the victim’s qualifying family members have a right to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Wrongful death can result from a variety of situations, including:
- Medical malpractice
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Defective products
- Police misconduct
- Pedestrian accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Premises liability
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
Regardless of the cause, spouses, children, or parents of the wrongful death victim can fight to hold the responsible party accountable for their wrongdoing. An experienced wrongful death lawyer in Suffolk can help you prove that an act of negligence caused the accident and your loved one’s death.
Types of Damages Available in Wrongful Death Cases
Although nothing can ever replace a loved one, the awarding of damages in a wrongful death case can go a long way in helping you recover from your loss.
Types of recoverable damages include:
- Medical bills and funeral costs
- Loss of income and benefits
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of companionship
- Punitive damages
