Different Types of Wrongful Death Cases

Different Types of Wrongful Death CasesLosing a loved one suddenly in an accident is never easy, especially when the loss is a result of someone else’s carelessness. When a person’s death is caused by negligent actions of another person or entity, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for damages. This type of lawsuit is known as a wrongful death case. The following are different types of wrongful death cases.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are the leading cause of wrongful death cases. The negligence of a driver often tragically leads to fatal car accidents caused by:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving

When a driver gets behind the wheel, they are committing to themselves and everyone else on the road to drive safely. If a driver ignores the rules of the road and cause the death of another, the affected family members may seek to hold him or her accountable for damages by filing a wrongful death case.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists lack the protection a vehicle offers and thus often lead to more fatal accidents. Many motorcycle accidents are caused when other drivers pull out or turn in front of a motorcyclist because the other driver fails to see the motorcycle.

Semi-truck Accidents

Semi-trucks weigh several tons. When a semi-truck accident occurs, the results can often be tragic. Semi-truck accidents are fairly uncommon but do require the attention of a skilled and experienced semi-truck accident lawyer from Parke Gordon Law Firm. The following are some common causes of semi-truck accidents,

  • Fatigued driving
  • Driving with an over sized load
  • Impaired driving
  • Mechanical issues with the truck
  • Losing control of the semi
  • Trucking company negligence
  • Poor road conditions

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider fails to give the proper care to their patients. In many cases, a wrongful death arises when a medical provider does one of the following.

  • Rush through a procedure or cut corners
  • Made a serious error during surgery
  • Failed to notice harm during a pregnancy or labor process
  • Misdiagnose a condition or fail to diagnose a condition altogether

Though Parke Gordon Law Firm does not handle medical malpractice cases, call us for a great referral in your area.
