Wrongful death claims can be filed due to a variety of accidents, including workplace accidents, slip and falls, construction site accidents and auto accidents. Basically, wrongful death is defined as any fatality caused by the negligence, strict liability or willful act of a person, business, partnership, or government entity. Most personal injury cases involve proving negligence: the willful inaction or disregard for the standard procedure.
For example, a shipping company is considered negligent if it fails to regularly service a delivery truck, causing the brakes to fail and the truck to crash and kill another driver. Or, an employer could be held responsible for deaths caused by knowingly allowing workers to use equipment that is outdated or dangerous.
