What Causes Wrongful Death?
Car accidents, medical malpractice and dog bites are among the many causes
of wrongful death.
A Pasadena wrongful death attorney can pursue compensation for a wrongful
death caused by:
Medical malpractice. The medical professionals we are supposed to trust can make serious mistakes
that cost the lives of our loved ones. Surgical errors, misdiagnosis,
lack of diagnosis, birthing errors, and improper drug prescriptions and
administration are among the medical malpractice situations that may call
for a wrongful death action.
Construction accidents. Workers or pedestrians may be killed when
construction accidents occur. Falling scaffolding and ladders, explosions and fires, falling
debris and defective machinery can all contribute to fatal situations.
Car accidents. When a
car accident results in a loved one's death, we can take action to recover monetary
damages. While pursuing wrongful death claims may be complex and lengthy,
we do not give up.
Truck accidents. Fatalities are common in
truck accidents. We bring in our team of experts to establish negligence and seek compensation
for the grieving family.
Motorcycle accidents. Bikers take risks each day on the road, even with protective helmets.
When death occurs in
motorcycle accidents, affected families can reach out to Tedford & Associates for experienced
help with obtaining wrongful death compensation.
Bus accidents. Surviving family members of a passenger or pedestrian killed in a bus
accident may have grounds to bring a wrongful death suit against the bus
driver, the bus company and perhaps even a governmental entity, such as
a school district when a school bus was involved.
Bicycle and pedestrian accidents. The families of
bicyclists and pedestrians killed by speeding cars, buses or trucks or by distracted or DUI drivers
need strong legal advocacy to establish wrongful death. At Tedford &
Associates, we have the necessary investigative and litigation skills
to help families recover monetary damages for their losses.
Dog bites. By law, a dog owner owes a duty of care to others. When
dog bites result in death, we hold dog owners accountable for their pets' actions
and their own negligence.
Premises liability. Property owners and managers must keep their premises clear of hazards.
When they violate that legal duty and someone dies, they should be held
accountable so it doesn't happen to another family. If you lost a
loved one because of a slip and fall accident on broken pavement, a falling
object in a store, a poorly maintained stairwell or dim parking lot, or
any other property defect, we can hold the owner accountable for wrongful death.
Other wrongful death causes include assault, battery, murder, and airplane
and train accidents.
