Causes of Wrongful Death

There are several ways that a wrongful death can occur. Depending on the individual circumstances of your case, you may be eligible for different forms of compensation. Here are some of the most common causes of wrongful death.


Negligence is defined as failing to take proper care when performing an action. This can be something as simple as pouring a cup of coffee, up to piloting a plane. While negligence itself isn’t the cause of wrongful deaths, it is often a major contributing factor in events that lead to wrongful death.

Auto Accidents

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of wrongful deaths in the United States. Driving while texting, excessive speeding, putting on makeup while driving, faulty equipment, and other factors can all contribute to an auto accident that results in death. Most often the at-fault driver is found to be negligent in some way while driving, which results in the accident.

Workplace Accidents

While not as common as auto accidents, workplace accidents may also lead to a wrongful death. In certain high risk industries the likelihood of a wrongful death is very high, especially if safety standards and precautions are maintained the way that they should be for safety in the workplace.

Medical Malpractice

Much like other types of cases, medical malpractice can cause death when a doctor or nurse fails to take proper precautions when taking care of a patient. Medical malpractice can be caused by human error, equipment failure, or pure negligence such as not checking a patient’s chart before administering medication.
