Car Accident Fatalities

Even the most skilled and cautious of drivers are unavoidably at the mercy of factors beyond their control on the roadway. The actions of other drivers, failures of automobile design or construction, malfunctioning systems, and negligently maintained streets and highways represent only a fraction of the potential dangers that can cause serious accidents.

Unfortunately, despite the significant advances in motor vehicle safety that have been made in recent decades, accidents still come with a substantial risk of fatality. Each year in the United States, tens of thousands of motorists are killed, leaving families to cope with a variety of struggles in the aftermath.

If you have lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident that was not his or her fault, then you may be able to pursue a legal action for wrongful death against the responsible parties.

Causes for a Wrongful Death Suit

  • Brake malfunction
  • Intoxicated or reckless driving (by another driver)
