Accidental Death Lawsuits
Hiring a wrongful death attorney in PA., or NJ, filing suit for a wrongful death, accidental death lawsuits
Wrongful death is a heartbreaking event because there is never a chance to say goodbye. Wrongful death is caused by a defendant’s misconduct or negligence. Fatal auto accidents are the number 1 reason for accidental fatalities and wrongful death lawsuits. Another example could be for instance, if your husband (the victim) falls off a defective ladder, hits his head on the sidewalk and dies from a traumatic brain injury; the ladder manufacturer could be at fault for a wrongful death lawsuit or accidental death lawsuit.
Suing for a wrongful death
By suing for a wrongful death, your attorney could prove that the ladder manufacturer was negligent and liable for your husband’s death.
Dependents may suffer financially for lost wages and lack of support as a result of the victim’s death. Spouses, children, and other dependents may suffer from emotional stress caused by the ladder accident.
These are all real life issues that come together in a wrongful death lawsuit. Family members and beneficiaries of the victim’s estate often can sue for a wrongful death from the harm left behind by an accidental death.
