What Is A Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death is the death of a human of any age that is the result of a wrongful act of another person, people or entity.

Wrongful acts usually are the result of negligence, reckless behavior, or malice.

A wrongful death is the basis for a lawsuit or wrongful death action. It can be filed against the party or parties who caused a death and can be fought on behalf of the victim’s surviving family members.

A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil suit that is not dependent on whether there is a criminal lawsuit against the perpetrator not. A wrongful death civil lawsuit is filed and tried independent of whether there is/was a criminal lawsuit, nor does the outcome of any criminal proceedings determine the outcome of the civil lawsuit.

Causes of Wrongful Death

A wrongful death can be the result of many different causes. It can occur in many different locations and because of many different situations. It does not matter whether your loved ones death was deliberate or unintentional, the surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for their loss.

If you are going through the difficult situation of knowing or thinking that the death of your loved one warrants a wrongful death claim, contact a wrongful death lawyer Montgomery MD families can turn to in trying times such as the one you are finding yourself in. Being informed of your and your family’s rights may help you to make to make decisions about how to proceed in the upcoming days and months.

Common causes of wrongful deaths include but are not limited to:

Medical Malpractice

Wrongful deaths are unfortunately common because of the negligence of physicians,
other health practitioners, and the hospitals/facilities where treatments, procedures and
surgeries are performed.

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Even though people send their older loved ones and loved ones who are unable to care
for themselves to nursing homes and facilities, it does not guarantee that they will be
properly taken care of. Physical, mental/emotional and sexual abuse are causes of
wrongful deaths in nursing homes. Forms of negligence that can cause wrongful deaths
in nursing homes include malnutrition, misappropriated medications, lack of attention
and/or lack of appropriate monitoring and supervision.

Vehicular Accidents

Accidents involving cars, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians are one of the more common
causes of wrongful deaths. People who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs,
drive recklessly, and/or aggressively, often break laws that result in the death.

Workplace Accidents

Even when an individual complies and practices the safety rules of their job, deaths on
the job are all too common. When they are the result of a person (or peoples)
negligence, malice or reckless behavior, it may be considered a wrongful death.

Premise Liability Accidents

When an owner of a property or a property manager fails to properly maintain their
premises, accidents that are the result of their negligence can cause wrongful deaths.

Violent Acts and Crimes

Regardless of the perpetrators intent, if a person dies as the result of their violent act or
crime, it may be considered a wrongful death.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
