Dealing with the death of a loved one can be one of life’s most difficult challenges. If the death was caused because of the wrongful actions of another party, the death can be even more difficult to deal with. If someone’s negligent actions caused the death of your loved one in Frisco, you have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Under the law, a wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another party. People who were dependent upon or a beneficiary of the individual killed could be entitled to monetary damages.
There are a number of situations in which a wrongful death lawsuit may arise. Many wrongful deaths occur because of the actions of a negligent driver, who may have caused a tragic automobile accident. Some wrongful deaths occur due to the negligence of a doctor who committed medical malpractice, such as by making an error during surgery or failing to diagnose a health condition. Landlords or other property owners can commit wrongful death if they fail to fix a dangerous property condition about which they knew or should have known, and a visitor to the property is killed as a result.
