We know that losing a loved one can change the whole dynamics of your life. Whether you are the spouse of someone killed or their child, there are so many things to handle. Funeral services and burial are just the beginning. Picking up the pieces and carrying on with your lives won’t be easy. This is especially true when a loved one is lost in an accident.
We recognize that sometimes accidents do happen and are unavoidable, but we also know that there are times when someone’s negligence contributes to a death.
Sometimes the products we use are damaged or poorly designed by the manufacturer. If you lose a loved on due to a design flaw in a vehicle that led to a crash, the vehicle manufacturer may be liable for damages.
If a medicine that your loved one consumed was mislabeled or was tainted in the production process and led to their death, the company who produced the medicine should be held accountable.
We expect the products we use and consume to be safe. If they cause us harm, we need to ensure that the company responsible is held liable so that nobody else gets hurt or killed because of their negligence.
If your loved one was forced to work in a hazardous environment that was beyond their expected scope of duties and they died because of it, the company owners and manages should held liable for the death. This could include a company not providing proper safety equipment or not advising employees of the risks of working with certain chemicals or materials. It could also include employers forcing employees to work longer hours. Around heavy machinery, exhausted workers are slower to react, potentially causing severe accidents.
If you loved on was killed in a vehicle accident that was caused by a driver impaired by drugs or alcohol, then that driver led to the wrongful death of your loved one. This could also be true of a driver who was distracted at the time of the accident because they were sending a text message or watching a video on their phone.
