What is Wrongful Death?
Losing a loved one is one of the most painful experiences we can go through as human beings. Nobody prepares us to face such a situation. Worse yet, knowing that someone close to us had to leave early due to someone else’s negligence is even more terrible to bear.
At Nourmand Legal, we handle wrongful death cases, which legally refer to the situation in which a person loses their life due to the negligent, malicious, careless, and unethical conduct of a third party.
There are different factors and circumstances in which a wrongful death can occur. Some of the most common are:
Medical negligence. Poor care or poor decisions made by the medical team during surgery or illness. Not making a diagnosis or making an incorrect diagnosis.
Car accidents. It can range from a car accident due to a person driving while intoxicated to accidents due to the reckless and careless driving of another driver, whether of a car, motorcycle, truck, etc.
Exposure to toxic materials or environments. This can be observed many times in the type of workplaces where we can find toxic materials or environments. The workers do not have the necessary safety equipment or limit their exposure time.
Manufacturing defects. A person can die due to a defective product such as medications, toxic foods, products that are not safe for children to use, defective auto parts, etc. That is why manufacturers have a responsibility to conduct extensive testing before putting their products on the market.
Work accidents. There are some jobs where people are exposed to more danger than others. Some of them may be, for example, construction work or manual work with large machines. Suppose an employer places a worker in a dangerous environment without providing the necessary safety equipment or the required training. Or maybe this employer makes his employees work for long hours, and they are affected by fatigue, which causes an accident. In that case, he will be acting negligently, and in case of a fatality, the family will have the grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
