I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
5 Common Reasons for a Wrongful Death Claim in Georgia
There are thousands of motor vehicle accidents every day, and unfortunately, many of those result in death. Wrongful death accidents can result from defective mechanisms within the vehicle, but most commonly result from someone else’s negligent driving.
Medical malpractice that results in a wrongful death is usually due to a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional or facility’s negligent actions, or lack of action. Pharmacy error is another form of medical malpractice. Providing someone the wrong medication or the wrong dose of medication can be deadly.
Wrongful death cases involving your elderly loved one can be extremely devastating. Nursing homes are supposed to protect and care for your loved ones, but occasionally, employees are found liable for the abuse or neglect of the elderly. This behavior is often a direct cause of their death.
On the job accidents that result in a wrongful death claim are usually a result of an unsafe workplace or inadequate training. Unknowingly using faulty equipment or not knowing the proper safety precautions also qualifies as wrongful death. Some fields are more dangerous than others and have a much higher rate of injury and death, such as health care and construction.
Defective Product Liability
Manufacturers are held accountable for all of the products they create, produce, and sell to consumers. If an innocent victim dies from using a defective product, a case may be built against the manufacturer. Additionally, these companies are required to state any dangers of using their product on the label, and issue recalls on faulty or dangerous products.
