What Are the Common Causes of Wrongful Death?

Among the more common causes of death that give rise to lawsuits under Florida’s Wrongful Death Act are the following:

Motor Vehicle Accidents – Motorists are common culprits in wrongful death cases. Accidents involving drunk driving, distracted driving, or reckless behavior are frequently fatal.

Medical Malpractice – Medical errors by healthcare providers, including misdiagnosis, medication errors, and failure to treat, can result in wrongful death.

Workplace Accidents – Industrial fields like construction, manufacturing, and mining are particularly prone to accidents that can result in the wrongful death of a worker.

Product Liability – If a product is designed or manufactured poorly and kills someone, the company or companies responsible for that product could be liable.

Criminal Actions – Homicide or other intentional acts that result in death can also give rise to a wrongful death lawsuit separate from any criminal proceedings.

Premises Liability – Property owners can be responsible for wrongful deaths that occur on their property due to unsafe conditions, such as inadequate security or dangerous animals.

Nursing Home Abuse – Fatal incidents in nursing homes can arise from inadequate staffing, medical negligence, or improper monitoring of residents.
