What is a Wrongful Death Accident?
A death that results from negligence, carelessness, or misconduct is referred to as wrongful death. A wrongful death accident can occur as a result of many circumstances, including
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Premises liability
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Defective products
- Nursing home negligence
- Medical malpractice
- Swimming pool accidents
- Day care injuries
Wrongful death claims can be filed against individual people or against companies or corporations. Claims are usually filed against an individual for wrongful deaths stemming from auto accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents, etc. In some cases, such as in product liability cases, the lawsuit is brought against the company that manufactured the defective product. Furthermore, wrongful death cases can be filed against multiple parties. For example, if your loved one was killed as a result of nursing home neglect, you can bring charges against both an individual caretaker and the nursing home.
An experienced North Georgia wrongful death lawyer can review your case, give you an idea of how much your claim may be worth, and determine who the lawsuit should be filed against.
