Common Causes of Wrongful Death
Wrongful death can occur in any number of ways:
Distracted driving, reckless driving, and drunk driving are the top causes of car accidents. Many deaths occur as a result of a preventable driver error. Negligent and dangerous behavior behind the wheel is unacceptable, and in the case of drunk driving or a hit-and-run, criminal charges also apply.
Consumers rely on various products throughout the day, but if there is a design defect in a product, its use many times results in injury or even death. When those defects are known and ignored or improperly tested for, you have a case for wrongful death. For example, the Takata airbag scandal that began in 2013 claimed three lives in California and injured many more. The airbags were found not to deploy correctly, acting instead like fragmentation grenades that exploded on drivers and passengers, delivering high-velocity shrapnel, rather than safely inflating to cushion against impact force.
Premises liability covers a range of accidents, but it refers to a property owner’s legal responsibility to maintain a safe environment for visitors. When a wrongful death results from a failure to create and maintain a secure and safe space for residents, guests, or any person welcome on a property, there are grounds for a claim for damages and if necessary, a lawsuit.
