What Situations Cause Wrongful Death Cases in Nassau County?

Wrongful death cases occur when a person’s death is caused by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another party. Some common situations that can result in wrongful death cases include:

  • Car accidents: Car accidents caused by reckless or negligent drivers can result in wrongful death cases.
  • Medical malpractice: When a medical professional’s negligence results in a patient’s death, the surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
  • Workplace accidents: Workplace accidents caused by unsafe working conditions or employer negligence can result in wrongful death cases.
  • Defective products: When a defective product causes a person’s death, the manufacturer or distributor may be held liable for wrongful death.
  • Premises liability: Property owners have a duty to ensure that their property is safe for visitors. If a person dies as a result of unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, the property owner may be liable for wrongful death.
  • Criminal acts: Criminal acts such as assault, murder, or manslaughter can result in wrongful death cases.
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect: When a person dies as a result of abuse or neglect in a nursing home, the facility or staff may be held liable for wrongful death.

These are just a few examples of situations that can result in wrongful death cases. If you have lost a loved one and believe that another party may be responsible, it is important to consult with an experienced wrongful death attorney to discuss your legal options.

What must be proven in a wrongful death case?

In a wrongful death case, the plaintiff (typically the surviving family members of the deceased) must prove certain elements to be successful. These elements include:

  1. Duty of care: The defendant (the person or entity being sued) had a duty to act with reasonable care and avoid causing harm to the deceased. 
  2. Breach of duty: The defendant breached their duty of care, either through an act of negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct.
  3. Causation: The defendant’s breach of duty was a direct and proximate cause of the deceased’s death.
  4. Damages: The plaintiff suffered actual damages as a result of the deceased’s death, such as medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of income, and loss of consortium (the loss of companionship and support).

In the case of a defective product, negligence doesn’t need to be proven. Rather, it needs to be proven that the product malfunctioned and as a result, caused your loved one’s passing.

In order to prove these elements, the plaintiff will typically need to present evidence such as eyewitness statements, expert testimony, medical records, and other relevant documentation. The specific evidence required will depend on the circumstances of the case. An experienced wrongful death attorney can help you build a strong case and present the evidence necessary to prove your claim.
