Do I Have A Claim?
The legal definition of wrongful death is a claim against another individual or party that alleges that the named party’s negligent acts directly caused the victim’s fatal injuries. Such negligent acts can also include another individual or party’s failure to act.
Nearly 2.5 million U.S. resident deaths were registered in 2008. An estimated 38.6 in 100,000 million died due to accidents. Further statistics from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show that unintentional injuries are the 5th leading cause of death to Americans.
There were over 180,000 injury-related deaths in 2010. Accidents happen on a daily basis, and although many result in minor injuries, others can tragically end in death.
