Our days usually begin and end the way we expect them to, the way they did the day before. We see our loved ones and just assume that they will be there the next day.
If you’ve lost a loved one in an unexpected accident, the shock of the situation can leave you confused, angry, and with many questions. If you believe the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, then you may need a wrongful death lawyer. At the Dan Doyle Law Group, our attorneys know that you are going through a difficult time and want to help.
In the aftermath of an accident that kills a loved one, you will certainly have many questions.
Accidents can happen to anyone, and often they are nobody’s fault. We also know that, sometimes, these accidents could have been prevented.
In Pennsylvania, over 10,000 vehicle accidents are alcohol-related each year, representing around 25 percent of total traffic fatalities. Not only should the intoxicated driver be held liable for any injuries of deaths they cause, but so should anyone who continued to serve them alcohol beyond a reasonable amount.
If your loved one was forced to work in hazardous conditions that led to their death, then their employer should be held accountable. This can include:
We have a right to expect the products we use and consume to be safe. When they aren’t, whether intentionally or unintentionally, then someone should be held responsible.
There could be times when our loved one used a product that was poorly designed or was somehow damaged in the manufacturing process. In cases like this, such as a power tool that fails or a vehicle engine that catches fire, the manufacturer should be held liable for damages.
If your loved one was taking a medication that did not have all of the proper warnings labeled, such as listed side effects or proper dosage, then the medication manufacturer could be held liable for their death.
