Wrongful Death Accident Categories
A Wrongful Death can occur in various situations, but the four main categories of accidents that have the highest probability of ending in a wrongful death are:
- Car Accidents – These accidents are most commonly caused by speeding, driving under the influence, reckless driving, equipment malfunction, or driver inexperience.
- Medical Malpractice – There are many forms of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when doctors and caregivers do not meet an appropriate standard of care. For example, a doctor fails to properly diagnose a patient and administers the wrong medication.
- Workplace and Construction Accidents – Workers can potentially face many hazards in the workplace; a few hazards can even lead to a wrongful death. These hazards include: fires, falling from a scaffolding or roof, being struck by falling objects or equipment with moving parts, being electrocuted, and being exposed to toxic chemicals.
- Product Liability – An improper or unsafe product design can cause a serious accident and lead to a wrongful death.
