Causes of Wrongful Death in Conroe That We Can Help You Sue for
Wrongful death can occur in a number of ways. These are some of the most common cases we see.
Another driver could have been distracted, intoxicated, drowsy, or aggressive while behind the wheel and crashed into your loved one was a result. The other driver could have been in a truck, as opposed to your loved one’s smaller and lighter passenger vehicle.
A broken traffic light, debris in the road, or a defaced traffic sign could have also contributed to the accident. In this situation, a municipality could be partially liable for your loved one’s passing. This could also be the case if a city bus was involved in the accident.
A Slip-and-Fall Injury
Hazards on another person’s property could have harmed your loved one, like:
- Loose floorboards
- Unmaintained stairwells and elevators
- Sinkholes that are not paired with signs or a barrier of some kind
- Live wires
- Lack of a fence around “attractive nuisances” that could catch the attention of a child, like a swimming pool
- Improper security, such as broken light fixtures or locks
- A dangerous dog that was not properly leashed or restrained
A Blass Law PLLC personal injury lawyer serving Conroe, TX could help you determine whether the hazard that caused or contributed to your loved one’s death qualifies you to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Work Injuries Caused by Gross Negligence
In Texas, you can sue your loved one’s employer if you can prove “gross negligence” was the cause of their fatal injuries under Texas Labor Code §408.001. Your family member could have been harmed by exposed live wires that caused a resulting fatal shock. Such an occurrence could entitle you to seek damages.
