Some of the most common causes of wrongful death include:
- Motor vehicle accidents: Car accidents jumped sharply in 2016, killing more than 37,400 motorists and passengers.
- Traumatic brain injuries: These serious injuries killed more than 50,000 Americans annually.
- Pedestrianinjuries: Increased distractions – for both drivers and pedestrians – has no doubt contributed to an 11 percent spike in pedestrian fatalities in 2016. Accidents took the lives of nearly 6,000 that year.
- Defective product injuries: Roughly 36,000 American consumers die every year because of defective consumer products.
- Slip and falls: About half of all slip-and-fall deaths take place in the home, and are one of the leading causes of death among senior citizens.
- Workplace accidents: In 2015, workplace accidents took the lives of more than 4,800 employees.
Depending on the circumstances of the accident that took your loved one’s life, damages can potentially be recovered for funeral expenses, lost earnings, lost future income, pain and suffering on behalf of the surviving loved ones, and medical bills, for example. For help going through all of these numbers, it is important to consult with a personal injury lawyer in Wyoming who has experience with these cases.
