Wrongful Death Due to Automobile Accidents
Thousands of people die every year from automobile accidents. Sometimes negligence of a driver (such as intoxicated, or distracted by texting) can be the cause. In other instances, failure of parts in the vehicle due to faulty design (such as SUV rollovers) or manufacture are to blame. Regardless of the cause, losing a loved one is emotionally and financially devastating. Auto insurance will likely cover some expenses associated with a wrongful death due to an auto accident- but the insurance company will also be interested in paying as little as they possibly can. The decedent’s family and loss are of little concern to an insurance company.
A suit may also be brought against a car manufacturer if design flaws or poor assembly caused the accident to occur due to mechanical failure of the auto. These suits may be individual or class action if an entire line of vehicles is having similar problems and causing accidents.
