Wrongful Death lawsuits are a response to a needless death that came about through the negligence, carelessness, or misconduct by another person or group of people. As tragic and sorrowful as any death is, feelings of frustration and helplessness may add to the grief if a loved one was lost because of any of these factors.
Individuals such as drunk drivers can be responsible for a wrongful death if they can be shown to be careless or negligent, or if the death was a result of misconduct, like when someone is committing a crime. More frequently, though, companies and manufacturers are found guilty of a wrongful death lawsuit when their conduct or practices fails to take all reasonable precautions.
Drug companies that produce medications like Vioxx® that have been shown to cause fatalities when used as prescribed may be liable for those deaths. If you are the survivor of such a tragedy, a personal injury lawyer with Banafshe Law Firm, PC, has the experience and discipline to present a solid case with your interests in mind.
Those whose jobs required prolonged exposure to asbestos and who died from mesothelioma or from other chemicals like Benzene may also be able to claim a wrongful death if the employer failed to take all the necessary steps to protect its workers. Gases emitted by welding rods and insecure scaffolding have caused countless, needless deaths, and the manufacturers can be at blame for them.
The financial costs for any wrongful death can be enormous, and a successful lawsuit will take into account all future earnings that were lost.
