Losing a loved one in an unexpected accident is a not something anyone wants to experience. But what happens if you find out that your loved one died due to the negligence of another person or company?
If you need a Bristol wrongful death attorney, you can count on us to be by your side, working to secure the compensation you need after a tragedy.
What Can Happen
Wrongful death cases arise when someone else’s careless or negligent actions cause another person to lose their life. These cases can be brought by a victim’s family against the person or group responsible for the death. Here are some common ways we see wrongful death cases arise:
More than 10,000 vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania each year are alcohol-related and they account for around 25 percent of total traffic fatalities. Intoxicated drivers should be held accountable for their reckless decisions.
Workplace deaths often happen because an employer has created an unsafe working environment. This can happen if an employee is made to work around unsafe or uninspected heavy machinery, if they are forced to use equipment they weren’t trained to use and if they are made to work with hazardous chemicals without proper gear.
We use hundreds of products in our homes each day. Unfortunately, there are times when something we use is faulty. If a product is poorly designed, has a manufacturing flaw, or is labeled incorrectly, it can cause fatalities for consumers.
Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the United States. They happen because medical professionals become negligent in their care. We often see deaths occur due to medication errors, surgical mistakes, hospital-acquired infections, and patient misdiagnosis.
(This list is by no means complete. Always seek a qualified attorney to review your particular case.)
