Losing a loved one in a sudden accident is one of the toughest things you can experience. Legal services are available if you want to know your options to get justice for your family member. If you are dealing with the following situations, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim.  

Car Accident

There are many thousands and thousands of car accidents that occur daily, many of which result in fatalities. Losing a loved one in a car accident is an extraordinarily tough experience, but there is legal help that you can rely on. Talk to an accidental lawyer who will pursue the parties responsible for causing the accident so that they can get justice for your loved one, as well as obtain compensation for you and your family. 

Work-Related Accident or Illness 

It is common for accidents to happen on the job, but some accidents can be fatal. If you have lost a loved one due to a workplace accident and suspect that their employer or another individual may be at fault, reach out to a skilled wrongful death lawyer so that they can prepare a case for you. A wrongful death lawyer like one at Seber Bulger Law can tell you that you can recover funeral expenses and other types of losses. 

Medical Malpractice 

Wrongful death lawyers are skilled at gathering the facts and evidence of a medical malpractice case. Medical malpractice is when a doctor or other healthcare professional makes an error, mistake or fails to provide the appropriate standard of care to a patient under their duty. If the patient dies as a result of their actions or inaction, a wrongful death claim can be filed against them. These cases are highly difficult to take on. Hospitals, private clinics and other healthcare facilities are prepared to handle any litigation against them, so you will need an aggressive and competent lawyer who can skillfully argue your case. 

Dog Bite 

Dog owners are responsible for looking after their pets, and making sure that they are leashed and secured properly, especially near other people. If your loved one was bitten or injured by a dog and died as a result of their wounds because of an owner’s negligence, the owner can be held liable for damages you have suffered. Pet owners are legally responsible if their animals harm people or animals. You can request legal assistance from a wrongful death lawyer to file a claim. 

Assault and Battery 

Someone walks into a bar and gets punched by a drunk patron, causing them to fall over and hit their head on the pavement as a result, they suffer serious injuries and later pass away. This is one example of an assault and battery scenario that a wrongful death lawyer handles. If your loved one died because of someone who committed assault, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against them and hold them criminally responsible. Request a consultation with a qualified wrongful death lawyer now if you would like to file a claim.
