Three Circumstances for Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
October 4th, 2016|
Above all else, our health is our greatest asset. At Norris Injury Lawyers, we believe that everyone in Alabama has the right to pursue a long, productive life, free from harm or persecution from others. As personal injury lawyers, we know all too well how often that right is robbed from folks in our community by careless individuals. That’s why we dedicate so much of our time and resources to helping the families of wrongful death victims get the justice they deserve for their loved one.
But how do you know if your loved one’s death qualifies for a wrongful death lawsuit? Generally, you can file a claim for wrongful death if your loved one’s death was the result of one of the following circumstances:
- Deliberate measures—someone intentionally harmed your loved one
- Negligence—someone’s negligent act was the cause of your loved one’s death
- Strict liability—an unsafe consumer or defective medical product caused your loved one’s death
The wrongful death attorneys at Norris Injury Lawyers have experience handling wrongful death cases in all three criteria. Over the years, we’ve fought alongside victims’ families and secured substantial settlements and verdicts on their behalf.
