These Cases Are Necessary
Many people do not realize that wrongful death cases are civil cases separate from any criminal cases that may be associated with a person’s death. In fact, it is not necessary for a criminal case to be present for a wrongful death case to proceed. These cases are generally brought by family members of a person who has died due to the negligence, carelessness, or willful act of another person or entity.
Today, we want to discuss the common causes of these cases, but please know that this is not a complete list and that you should always speak with an attorney.
- Vehicle Accidents – During the latest reporting year in New Jersey, there were 591 traffic crash deaths. Many of these deaths were due to alcohol-impaired drivers, distracted drivers, or an otherwise negligent driver.
- Defective Products – We know that people are killed due to products that have a design flaw, a manufacturing error, or are not labeled correctly. In some cases, it is not discovered that a product can cause injuries or illnesses until years after it has been on the market.
- Workplace Accidents – It is the duty of all employers, regardless of the industry, to ensure that their employees are as safe as possible. This includes providing them with all the equipment and training necessary to perform their jobs correctly.
- Medical Mistakes – Surgical mistakes, medication errors, infections, misdiagnosis, delayed treatment, and more. All of these things contribute to the more than 250,000 people are killed each year due to errors made by healthcare professionals. This is the third leading causes of death in the US.
- Criminal Activity – If a person is killed while someone else is committing a crime, whether they were killed by mistake or were targeted, the person responsible for their death can be held accountable for their actions.
