The death of a loved one is never easy. The compassionate legal team at Rizio Law Firm has the experience and dedication to help you through this traumatic period in your life. Although wrongful death cases cannot bring your loved one back, they can help to give you a sense of justice and provide the funds necessary to ease your grief.

Understanding Wrongful Death Law

To understand the critical role of wrongful death law, it is necessary to understand the difference between criminal and civil cases. In criminal cases, the government pursues the wrongdoer with charges that result in fines, prison time, or even the death penalty. In civil cases, however, you pursue the wrongdoer in court to obtain financial compensation. Wrongful death cases are a civil matter, and they are pursued in conjunction with criminal charges that are initiated by the government on the federal or state level. In summary, even though your loved one has passed away, wrongful death cases enable you to file lawsuits against the individual that was responsible for the death of your loved one.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

With more than 6 million motor vehicle accidents each year, traffic accidents are one of the leading causes of death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 37,461 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents in 2016. Although only a minority of deaths on the road are the result of negligence, wrongful death claims are common in the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident. Drivers must exercise caution while on the road, follow traffic laws, and drive according to prevailing road conditions. If you believe that your loved one died as a result of negligent or reckless behavior by the driver who was at fault, you should contact a wrongful death lawyer to review your options.

Workplace Accidents

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more than 1.5 million injuries in the workplace each year, and 5,190 of these injuries were fatal in 2016. Unfortunately, the drive for profit can often cause employers to endanger the people who work for them to cut costs or boost productivity. Workplace accidents are unique because they often enable you to file lawsuits against several parties, including your loved one’s manager, co-workers, corporate executives, and the company itself. The evidence is critical for litigating against an employer, so you should try to gather all possible information in the immediate aftermath of your loved one’s death.

Product Liability

The products that people use on a daily basis can sometimes lead to fatalities when manufacturers do not employ the right precautions to ensure the safety of the goods they sell. Wrongful death cases related to product liability can range from toys that cause suffocation to heavy equipment that malfunctions. When filing a product liability lawsuit, you can often sue designers, distributors, manufacturers, and other relevant parties. It is important to understand that individuals and entities involved in designing, manufacturing, or distributing a product can be held liable even if they did not act negligently. Product liability law can be complex, so you should work closely with a wrongful death lawyer to determine the best course of action.
