Frequent Causes of Wrongful Deaths

A wrongful death is a death caused by the wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, un-skillfulness, or default of a person, corporation, or agent. This definition is broad, and many situations can be classified as a wrongful death.

Some of the most common include:

Who Can Be Sued For Wrongful Death?

If the injury to your loved one was caused by a person, then usually that person can be sued individually. However, many wrongful deaths are caused not by people, but by the negligence of an entire corporation. If a corporation created an unsafe work environment, failed to properly train its employees, or distributed an unsafe or defective product, that corporation can be sued for damages.

Additionally, if a person caused an injury while acting as an employee, that persons employer can also be held responsible.

For example, in a bus accident or a trucking accident, the driver may have been careless or reckless while driving the company vehicle. In that case, both the driver and the drivers company can be held liable for a wrongful death.
