Grieving for a lost loved one is always a painful experience, filled with feelings of loss and sorrow. When a family member’s death comes about due to another person’s negligence, though, the pain of this untimely loss is always amplified, knowing that it could have been prevented if everyone had been behaving in a reasonable manner. Sadly, wrongful death is all too common, whether due to reckless drivers causing road accidents or incompetent medical professionals engaging in malpractice with lethal results. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., we specialize in handling wrongful death claims in civil court. If you lost a loved on to wrongful death and want to discuss your rights and options with a wrongful death lawyer, contact us today for a no-cost case evaluation.
Wrongful death data
According to information provided by Dr. David Belk via the National Practitioner Data Bank, an estimated 8,500 claims were paid in 2016 over medical malpractice. In a 2013 study published in BMJ Open, a majority of medical malpractice claims were due to misdiagnosis of an illness or an error with prescribed medication. Of course, unfortunately, medical malpractice is only a part of the picture with wrongful death lawsuits. There are sadly a variety of ways in which wrongful death can come about due to another party’s negligent actions (or lack thereof).
Common wrongful death suits
It is staggering the number of ways in which wrongful death can take place. These tragically preventable fatalities are far too common. Here are some of the most common types of cases we see in our law offices:
- Fatal vehicular accident (bus crash, truck accident, car accident, etc.)
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
- Medical malpractice
- Dental malpractice
- Childcare abuse or neglect
- Criminal violence resulting in death
- Fatal work accidents
If your loved one was killed as a result of one of these types of wrongful deaths or their death could have been prevented but occurred due to someone else’s careless negligence, contact an attorney to discuss taking legal action.
