Lee’s Summit Wrongful Death Attorney

Wrongful Death Lawyer Lee’s Summit

When someone we care about dies prematurely, it causes a shockwave of grief to ripple through an entire family. The shock and pain of losing a loved one are amplified when we know their death could have been prevented. Sadly, many people die as a result of another person’s negligence each day, whether through a negligent physician or due to a motorist’s negligence causing a fatal car accident. If your loved one’s death could have been prevented and you want to speak to a wrongful death lawyer, the attorneys at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. can help you file a claim in civil court.

What is wrongful death?

Wrongful deaths are those where a person is deemed liable for causing the death and in which the death could have been prevented if the liable party had behaved in a reasonable manner. These deaths can take many forms, but each case has the same thing in common: tragic, preventable loss. People who are deemed to have been responsible for the death can be sued in civil court for their negligence, which contributed to causing someone to die, either directly or indirectly.

Types of wrongful death cases

Sadly, wrongful death can come about in many ways. Over the four decades we have been litigating wrongful death claims, we have worked with a variety of grieving families. Some examples of cases we have handled include:

  • Surgery performed with non-sterile instruments resulting in fatal infection
  • Birth injury resulting in newborn fatality
  • Consumer product design flaw leading to fatal injuries
  • Toxic or otherwise contaminated food products on supermarket shelves being consumed and causing death
  • Nursing home abuse resulting in head trauma and fatal brain injury
  • Skilled care facility neglect leading to necrosis of the skin resulting in fatal septic infection
  • Car accident caused by negligent driver running a red light and T-bone colliding with another vehicle, resulting in death
  • Semi truck driver under the influence colliding with multiple vehicles resulting in multiple fatalities

Wrongful death statistics

According to data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), dangerous consumer products and dangerous work environments contribute to many wrongful death cases in the United States each year. The CDC predicted that as many as 200,000 or more wrongful deaths (those cases where the death was caused by negligence) may take place in the U.S. every year, which is a sizeable portion of the predicted 900,00 preventable deaths estimated to happen in the country annually.
