Wrongful death is the term used to describe the tragic death of a person who did not die from natural causes, but rather from the fault of another. Below are just a couple examples of causes of wrongful death:
Car Accident: When a driver fails to follow traffic laws, is inattentive to the road, or drives recklessly, fatal injuries can occur.Wrongful death cases often result from car accidents.
Medical Malpractice: When doctors or physicians fail to perform a procedure properly, for example, patients may sustain serious or even fatal injuries as a result. Medical malpractice is a common cause of wrongful death.
The above list is far from comprehensive; many different types of accidents or acts of negligence can result in the untimely death of an innocent victim.
