Most Common Causes of Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents or slip and fall/trip and fall accidents are among the most common causes of wrongful death lawsuits.

Read on to learn more.

Fatal Car, Pedestrian, and Other Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents are a leading cause of death in the United States. The broad definition of car accidents includes pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle, truck, and other fatalities involving motorized vehicles.

Car wrecks and collisions occur for many reasons, among them:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving while under the influence
  • Failing to obey traffic laws

When a loved one passes due to a car accident, the victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the liable party. Get in touch with us to learn more.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can be fatal. Even when they don’t result in death, the consequences are life-altering. People may face brain injuries, broken bones, or paralysis.

Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents usually occur when establishments fail to adequately maintain the premises, warn visitors of faulty or slippery floors, or provide adequate lighting.

Trip and Fall Accidents

Trip and fall accidents are sometimes mistaken for being the same as slip and fall accidents, but there are notable legal distinctions. Brian D. Guralnick Injury Lawyers represents both slip and fall victims and trip and fall accidents.

Trip and fall accidents typically occur when an object on the ground prevents a person from being able to put one foot in front of the other — usually causing them to topple forward.

By contrast, slip and fall accidents typically result from a lack of friction between a person’s feet and the walking surface.

Slip and fall accidents usually result in a person falling backward, while trip and fall cases primarily result in an individual toppling forward.

The distinction may seem trivial if you’ve lost a family member due to a fall-down accident. But it’s crucial to have Boynton Beach legal representation that understands the difference between the types of fall-down cases and how to pursue the best result for you and your loved ones.

What Kind of Damages Can Be Claimed in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Boynton Beach?

If your loved one has been a wrongful death victim, you may be entitled to compensation for emotional and economic impact.

The most common damages sought by surviving claimants include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Payment of medical bills incurred due to negligence
  • Pain and suffering caused to the survivors of the deceased

The claimants may also file a survival action in conjunction with a wrongful death claim. This action would include damages that the victim sustained between the time of injury and death.
