Nobody wants to think about the possibility of experiencing a fatal work accident, but they can and do happen more often than we think. Many times these accidents are due to neglect on the part of the employer, with unsafe conditions that have gone unnoticed or ignored.
If you drive a motor vehicle, you’re required to carry insurance in order to protect yourself from financial liability if you’re found at fault in any vehicle accidents. The insurance companies charge you a premium every month that you must pay in order to legally drive.
A Wrongful Death claim is a lawsuit filed when someone’s death is caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party. For example, a Wrongful Death claim might be filed against a car company who manufactured parts that malfunctioned, resulting in the death of a person or people. Other common Wrongful Death suits can include cases against someone convicted of murder, a negligent medical facility and even medical malpractice in a hospital.
