Issues from Negligence
Mesriani Law Group
Fatal accidents often lead to serious
injury or death. Wrongful deaths have become one of the many
tragic results of these accidents. Families are left with
the lingering effects and pain of the loss of their loved
ones. Survivors or families of wrongful death victims are
entitled to file for claims which would somehow compensate
their sufferings and alleviate their financial burden.
Common Causes of Wrongful Death
There are many accidents that could result to an injury or
even the death of a person. Most of these accidents could
have been prevented only if people have exercised caution
and have been responsible in their duties.
Drowning. Resort owners and administrators have the
duty to keep their property as safe as possible to everyone.
There must be floaters made available especially to
inexperienced swimmers. Also, expertly trained lifeguards
must be strategically positioned so that they will see
people who might need their assistance.
These accidents usually victimize children who are not aware
of the dangers that water parks and settings present.
Parents must be watchful of their kids or ask a responsible
adult to keep an eye on them to avoid these tragedies.
Vehicle Accidents. According to a study,
vehicle-related accidents are the leading cause of
accidental deaths in the nation. High-velocity impact of
vehicles can cause severe injuries to a person that could
lead to his death.
Because of this, every motorist must be reminded not to
drive while intoxicated as this would affect their capacity
to think efficiently. Drivers must also maintain their speed
limit and follow every traffic rule to be sure that they
would not cause any road accidents.
Fall Accidents. It is the
establishment ownerís responsibility to constantly make sure
that his property is in safe condition for those who would
be visiting it. There are fall accidents caused by slight
negligence that have led to a personís paralysis or death.
Each case of wrongful death is different as there are
various accidents that could cause them. In order to avoid
wrongful deaths, we must keep in mind some reminders that
would keep us away from litigation and from accidents that
will endanger our lives.
It would also help if we do not over estimate our skills in
driving or swimming to avoid accidents. Checking our pathway
and flooring that we are walking on would also ensure that
we would be able to avoid fall accidents caused by faulty
tiles and flooring.
Even if we exercise more caution in our daily activities, we
canít still guarantee that we would not meet any accident as
it could still be caused by other parties.
