Which Type of Accidents Lead to Wrongful Death Claims?

Wrongful death claims can be some of the most difficult legal matters to handle. The grief of dealing with the unexpected loss of a loved one combined with the financial and legal impact such claims can cause to a family can seem overwhelming. Having an experienced wrongful death attorney at The Chiozza Law Firm can assist family members as they overcome such a tragic and sudden loss.

We have handled many wrongful death claims throughout our history, and typically these unfortunate claims usually come from the same type of accident.

Accidents That Typically Lead to Wrongful Death Claims

Motorcycle and Bicycle Accidents 

Due to the lack of protection afforded to bicycle or motorcycle operators, accidents of this nature can be fatal. Being aware of individuals operating a bicycle or motorcycle in Memphis, TN can literally save a life.

Pedestrian Accidents 

More and more people seem to be walking the streets of Downtown and Midtown Memphis, which can leave to serious accidents when an inattentive driver negligently strikes a pedestrian. 

Trucking Accidents 

We have outlined before that most trucking accidents are due to driver error, vehicle maintenance, or distracted driving. Accidents involving 18-wheelers typically cause severe and life-altering damage. 

Auto Accidents 

High-speed auto accidents and accidents involving impaired or intoxicated drivers lead to the majority of wrongful death claims.

What to Do if You Think You Are Entitled to Wrongful Death Compensation

If your loved one or family member was killed due to the negligence of another party, you are entitled to financial compensation for damages including, but not limited to, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, loss of income, and mental anguish. When a wrongful death claim is presented to the appropriate insurance company, they realize the financial implications are exponentially more than a typical auto injury claim. Therefore, it is important that you contact an experienced wrongful death attorney at The Chiozza Law Firm. 

We have handled wrongful death claims across Tennessee and the Southeast, successfully assisting families to obtain the financial compensation they deserve. Because wrongful death claims are often complex and time-consuming, it is important to have the right attorney on your side.
