Types of Wrongful Death Case
Car Accidents From Drunk Drivers – If you’re loved one was killed by a drunk driver you have a pretty strong case for filing a wrongful death case. These are typically cases that don’t go to trial because the defendant has already pleaded guilty to the DWI and is awaiting sentencing, or the evidence is so strong that the insurance companies don’t want to go to trial and leave it up to a jury. Many times a settlement with the insurance company can be made very quickly with the insurance companies.
Product Malfunction – When a product malfunctions it’s likely not a one-time scenario. Usually, there are other cases in the legal system that have precedent and have shown that the product manufacturer is liable for the malfunctioning product. In these cases, all we have to prove is that the death was a result of the use of the product itself.
Medical Malpractice – Medical malpractice law is very complicated and it can be difficult to prove a Doctor acted in neglect of the patient. However, there are numerous examples of Doctors making mistakes that go beyond the normal calculation of a medical Doctor. What we typically look for here is situations where the Doctor hasn’t looked for a 2nd opinion in the case before making a crucial decision.
