If your loved one’s death could have been prevented, you deserve answers—and compensation if their death was caused by negligence. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, it’s our goal to help you get the damages your family deserves during this difficult time.

A Norfolk wrongful death lawyer can speak to you after your loved one’s death if you believe it was caused by another person’s or party’s negligence. One of the most common concerns we hear is whether or not surviving loved ones have a potential claim. In order for us to determine your rights, it’s vital that you contact us so that we can hear all of the details of what happened.

However, knowing the following common causes of wrongful deaths may help you as you move forward with your claim:

  • Auto accidents – Distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and aggressive drivers can seriously harm and even kill other motorists and their passengers.
  • Truck accidents – Truck drivers, companies, and owners are responsible for following strict safety guidelines at all times.
  • Medical malpractice – Healthcare professionals take oaths to “do no harm,” but their carelessness and negligence can cost patients their lives.
  • Work-related accidents – Employers have a duty to provide their workers with safe working environments, and when they don’t, fatal accidents can occur.

Those are just a few of the accident types that can be linked to wrongful deaths. Get in touch us today with for a free consultation to find out how we can help your family get the money you deserve for the loss of your loved one.
