Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is never easy, but losing a loved one in a preventable manner is particularly devastating. At Gharibian Law, we understand how traumatic a wrongful death case can be, and we handle each one with compassion and respect. 

If you have lost a loved one before their time, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. 

Determining Whether a Loss can be Considered Wrongful Death

A loss is considered a wrongful death when the death results from another party’s negligent behavior. Meaning that even accidental deaths can be considered wrongful if the person responsible acted negligently.

For example, if you lose a loved one in a car accident, the death could be considered wrongful if the other party was behaving neglectfully in any way. In this situation, neglectful behavior could be reckless driving, driving under the influence, driving without a license, etc. In these situations, intent does not matter. The negligent party may not have intended to harm your loved one, but the results are the results. Therefore, in the case of negligent behavior, the negligent actor deserves to be held accountable. 

It is important to understand that nearly any personal injury accident can lead to wrongful death. For example, automobile accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites, and defective products can cause significant harm and even death. If you know or even suspect that another party’s negligence caused your loved one’s death, call Gharibian Law to discuss.
