WHAT IS A WRONGFUL DEATH?
As a matter of law, a “wrongful death” happens as the result of an individual or entity’s negligence. Corporations and government municipalities can also be held legally responsible for their action or inactions that cause serious injury or death. A wrongful death claim is typically brought in a civil action under Michigan’s Wrongful Death Act, MCL § 600.2922. Incidents that may lead to a wrongful death lawsuit include:
• Motor vehicle accidents
• Bus accidents
• Trucking accidents
• Defective products
• Premises liability
• Railroad/aviation accidents
• Medical malpractice
• Workplace accidents
• Birth injury
• Nursing home negligence
• Police misconduct
• Prison or jail neglect
• Manslaughter or homicide
When these fatalities are caused by negligence, family members may be entitled to recover compensation to assist with the costs associated with the loss of their loved one including funeral expenses, emotional distress, and loss of income and emotional support. Our compassionate and skilled attorneys have experience handling an array of complex wrongful death matters. At Garrison Law, we can answer your questions, assess liability, and develop a plan of action, offering prudent legal advice and support as we navigate the legal process together.
