Motor Vehicle Accident Fatalities
In 2010, there were 1,324 deaths on Pennsylvania’s highways, a 54% increase from the year before. Roughly 21% of these accidents were caused by speed, while just about 34% involved alcohol. While not all accident fatalities are wrongful death cases, it makes sense to discuss the facts of your loved one’s accident with a Pennsylvania wrongful death lawyer.
According to statistics, about 40% of medical malpractice trials involved a wrongful death. Medical malpractice cases require a Pennsylvania wrongful death attorney with experience, knowledge of medical protocols, excellent research ability, and sufficient resources to prove wrongful death occurred due to medical malpractice.
Defective Product Fatalities
Manufacturers or sellers of products must ensure they are reasonably safe to consumers, and must warn consumers of potential dangers. Every year, defective and dangerous products including toys, cars and car parts, medical devices, and prescription medicines find their way into the homes of consumers and result in death. According to one study, about 7% of all deaths that occur in the United States are the result of a defective product. Pennsylvania wrongful death attorneys can determine if you have a defective product claim.
Employers must adhere to certain safety standards, and when those standards are violated it can result in the tragic death of a worker. Defective or dangerous machinery, lack of maintenance or repair, slips and falls, and exposure to hazardous materials may result in fatalities.
Premises Liability Deaths
Property owners are legally responsible for ensuring that their premises are safe to those who visit them. Every year, thousands of people in the United States die as a result of slips-and-falls, swimming pool accidents, attractive nuisances, and other dangerous conditions.
