Wrongful death, whether through medical malpractice or a criminal act, is devastating to the victim’s family, both emotionally and financially. While the burden of proof in a civil case to prove wrongful death is less than that of a criminal case, it is imperative the case is prepared and fought by attorneys who specialize in this area of case law. Prosmushkin & Tsirkin Trial Lawyers has over 30 years of combined experience fighting for victims and their families in wrongful death suits.
Here are three examples, of many, when a wrongful death case would be applicable:
When a victim is intentionally harmed and their injuries result in death.
- Medical Malpractice
If death occurs due to a missed diagnosis or to the carelessness or negligence of a healthcare or medical provider, wrongful death could be claimed.
- Car Accidents
If a victim dies due to injuries sustained during a car accident, the victim’s family can sue the other driver for wrongful death.
Wrongful death suits must be brought by the specific representative of the deceased’s estate and then represented by an attorney. For example, a spouse can bring a wrongful death suit on behalf of their deceased spouse or a parent for that of a child.
