Losing a loved one is devastating, but when a family member’s death results from the negligent, careless, or reckless actions of someone else, it may be even more difficult to move on. While a lawsuit against the at-fault party cannot replace your lost loved one, a skilled wrongful death lawyer could get you compensation to help pay for expenses and the financial burden that and arise as a result of the death.
If you recently lost someone you love, and you believe someone else was at fault, it may be important for you to speak to a Chicago or Tampa wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible. There are certain laws and statutes that apply to these lawsuits in Illinois and Florida, Larry Disparti can help you make sense of all of them.
Leading Causes of Wrongful Death
- AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS are among the leading causes of wrongful death in the US. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there were 36,560 people killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes on U.S. roadways during 2018.
- MEDICAL MALPRACTICE and neglectful medical care, unfortunately, are not uncommon. If a medical professional should make a mistake or is negligent in providing care, there can be tragic and catastrophic consequences, including wrongful death.
- DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS When using vehicles, appliances, and toys as intended nobody expects to be injured, let alone killed. Unfortunately, defective products are a cause of wrongful death law suites.
- WORK ACCIDENTS The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that 5,250 workers died on the job in 2018. While accidents can happen on the job in any industry, over 20 percent of fatalities were in the field of construction.
When to Speak to the Disparti Law Group
Most wrongful death claims have a statute of limitations of two years. This means that, barring certain exceptions, those wishing to file a claim must file within two years of the date of death. Claims filed after this deadline are likely to be thrown out of court. Therefore, it is important to contact the Disparti Law Group right away to discuss your options.
If you have any questions, Ask Larry. Larry Disparti understands how difficult of a time this may be for you and your family. While a lawsuit cannot fix every wrong done to you, it could still help with the financial burden often left behind.
