Losing a family member to death is a tragic experience to suffer through, and when their passing could have been prevented but for the negligence of another party, the pain of the loss is significantly amplified. Knowing that your loved one might still be alive if someone else had acted in a reasonable manner is a horrific thought, and your family deserves legal justice. If your loved one passed away as the result of another party’s negligence and you wish to discuss your legal options with a wrongful death lawyer in Hamilton, contact the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. to consult with a knowledgeable wrongful death attorney.
Negligence and liability in wrongful death suits
An act of negligence is one in which a party acts in a manner that a reasonable person would not act in, and that action (or lack thereof, as with cases of neglect) results in damages to persons or property. In wrongful death cases, this negligence results in a person’s tragically preventable death. The negligent party or parties can be held liable—or legally accountable—for the damages that their rash actions or failure to act caused. These liable parties can be compelled by the civil courts to pay financial compensation to the deceased’s grieving families.
Common types of wrongful death cases
Unfortunately, wrongful death can come about in myriad situations. Some examples of wrongful death case types that our legal team sees in their offices include:
- Childcare/daycare neglect or abuse leading to death
- Nursing home abuse or neglect resulting in death
- Fatal car accidents
- Fatal truck crashes
- Fatal bus accidents
- Fatal pedestrian accidents and bicyclist accidents
- Medical malpractice resulting in fatality (misdiagnosis, improperly prescribed medication, etc.)
- Product liability cases resulting in wrongful death
- Fatal premises liability cases
Families deserve justice after wrongful death
We believe that wrongful death must not go unanswered for, and our job is to make sure liable parties are held accountable for their negligence so that grieving families can get the compensation they deserve after the untimely loss of a loved one. Although litigation cannot bring a deceased family member back, some families do find a sense of closure when the liable parties are held responsible for their wrongdoing in court, and the monetary compensation they receive can help ease the burden of financial stress that often accompanies losing a loved one to death.
