3 Types of Accidents Covered by a Wrongful Death Attorney

Losing a loved one because of another party’s negligent or wrongful actions can be a traumatic experience. At Reasonover Law, we help grieving parties seek justice and compensation for their loved ones by filing wrongful death claims. Our team will help ease the burden of loss by helping you navigate the complexities of the legal system. Here are three types of accidents a wrongful death attorney can help you navigate:

1. Vehicle Accidents

Reckless behavior like drunk driving, speeding, distracted driving, and driving vehicles with defects can result in tragic consequences. At Reasonover Law, we can help you file a wrongful death claim if you lose your loved one because of such behavior. Our team handles a range of vehicle accidents, regardless of whether your loved one was in a vehicle or a pedestrian on the street. We’ll carefully assess the circumstances surrounding your loved one’s death to determine whether to file the accident as a wrongful death claim. We’ll collect pertinent evidence and present it to the court or the negligent party. The negligent party may be the at-fault driver in the case of careless driving or the vehicle manufacturer if a vehicle safety defect is responsible for the accident.

2. Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents are relatively common in high-risk industries like manufacturing and construction. At Reasonover Law, we can help individuals seek fair settlements for work-related fatalities. Workplace accidents can result from inadequate employee training, poor working conditions, or employer negligence. We’ll take the time to assess the workplace environment and review safety protocols during your case. This will help us identify violations or failures by the employer that may have contributed to your loved one’s accident. Our goal for helping victims’ families is to help secure their financial health and prevent similar accidents from occurring in the future. Employers are more likely to implement safety measures after a wrongful death claim.

3. Premises Liability Accidents

Property owners are obligated to maintain safe conditions for visitors. Failure to do so can result in tragic accidents. We can file a wrongful death claim when your loved one dies on someone else’s property if the property owner is negligent. Here are some examples of situations where a property owner may be held liable:

  • Failure to repair their flooring, causing your loved one to fall.
  • Non-compliance with building codes, causing an accident that results in death.
  • Exposing your loved one to carbon monoxide, harmful chemicals, or gas leaks.
  • Not warning visitors of inapparent property defects that result in a death.

Our team will determine whether a property owner is at fault by assessing the circumstances of your loved one’s death. We’ll also evaluate your loved one’s reason for being on the property. We’ll examine everything from witness testimonies to property surveillance footage to collect evidence for your loved one’s case. According to Tennessee law, you can also file premises liability for your loved one if their accident happened on state property or as a result of the actions of a state organization.
