Death is a sad and tragic part of life, but there are some cases where it’s preventable. When death is caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, it’s a crime. While grieving for a loved one is a difficult process that understandably requires time, action needs to be taken competently and quickly in cases of avoidable and unintentional death. A wrongful death lawyer from The Paul Powell Law Firm will listen to your situation with compassion and fight for your justice with ferocity.
Wrongful Death Causes
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 169,936 unintentional injury deaths in 2017. Such tragedies can occur for a wide variety of reasons. They include but are not limited to:
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice (misdiagnosis, surgical errors, hospital errors, etc.)
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Inflicted emotional distress leading to suicide
The causes of wrongful death are varied and, in some cases, difficult to prove. The wrongful death lawyer team at The Paul Powell Law Firm has extensive experience winning these types of cases and earning justice for our clients.
