Accidents And Wrongful Death
In many cases, a wrongful death claim arises after an accident has occurred. Accidents are an all too common occurrence in California and throughout the nation:
- Every year, accidents result in 4 to 5 percent of the total deaths in Ventura County, according to the California Department of Public Health.
- Accidents are the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
- Fatal car accidents frequently top the list of deadliest type of accidents in California; in 2011 alone, there were more than 2,600 fatal accidents on the state's roadways, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety.
Despite their prevalence, accidents are not the only cause of fatalities that can lead to a wrongful death claim. Exposure to toxic substances, medical malpractice and many other types of negligent conduct can take a loved one from you and leave you wondering what options are available to you and your family. If you believe that a loved one may have been killed due to an accident or any other type of recklessness, contact us to get the answers you need.
