Wrongful Death Archives

Seeking compensation for wrongful death has specific time limits

The death of a loved one is something that you can't ever prepare for adequately. This is especially true when the death is unexpected. Losing a loved one in a car crash or medical malpractice is something that you might not ever fully recover from.

Medical professionals might face lawsuits for wrongful death

You expect that a loved one will get appropriate care from the doctors and medical professionals who are supposed to be taking care of them. When someone fails to do their job, you might end up getting a call that your loved one has lost his or her life. This is a sad situation that can devastate the family.

Know what options you have when an accident kills your loved one

We recently discussed the horrors of the power morcellation procedure. If you recall, this device and procedure are associated with an increase in fatal cancers. As you can imagine, this is a horrible thing to have watch your loved one suffer through.

Wrongful death claims might soften the financial blow

We've discussed some of the factors that impact car crashes, as well as some of the injuries that occur. The sad fact is that some of the injuries people experience in a car crash end up being fatal. When a loved one is killed in a car crash, those who are left behind have to determine how they are going to cope with the unimaginable situation.

When might I file a wrongful death lawsuit?

When a person is killed by another person, the family members who are left behind might choose to seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. These lawsuits enable the family members who are financially affected by the death to try to recoup some of the money they had to spend. Compensation can also help them to make ends meet since they can't count on their loved one's income any longer.

3 toddlers die in fatal accident; parents get a gift of love

California can lay claim to one of the more unique accident stories in recent times. It started off with a horrendous tragedy that unfortunately occurs daily in this state and nationwide. A mother was in her minivan sitting in backed-up traffic on an Orange County highway when a heavily weighed down industrial rig barreled into them going 55 mph. Her three children, two girls and a boy, ages 2, 4 and 5, died as a result of the fatal accident.

Wrongful death claims likely from fatal crash in Folsom

One of the most common scenarios for a car accident in California and elsewhere is the crossover accident. One driver crosses over the yellow line or the median strip and crashes into traffic coming in the other direction. When one or more innocent victims die in the accident, the driver who crossed the yellow line will almost always be liable in a wrongful death claim to the estate of each deceased victim that makes a claim.

Victims of California car accidents fortunate to escape injury

When traffic comes to a stop at night on a California highway, there is a pretty good chance that there is some trouble ahead. Car accidents may not always mean serious injury, but when the ones who cause the crash do not take responsibility, it adds to the frustration. Even when one faces seemingly minor injuries from a hit and run, that person may be due some compensation.
