Common Causes of Wrongful Death Cases
While any injury can result in a wrongful death case, some of the most common are:
- Vehicle accidents, including car, truck and motorcycle accidents
- Slips and Falls
- Catastrophic Injuries, including Traumatic Brain Injuries
Establishing a Wrongful Death Case
Tennessee requires that two primary elements be established in any wrongful death case:
- A human being’s death was brought about because of the willful or negligent disregard of someone else
- A loss of love, care, guidance, supervision, comfort, household assistance and general social structure established beforehand to a great degree by the one now departed
The recovery of both economic and non-economic damages is a right available to the family members of the victims of wrongful death. Economic damage include the lost income from the deceased family member, medical expenses and funeral costs. Though no amount of money can replace a loved one, non-economic damages are those deemed appropriate when evaluating the many aspects of emotional loss experienced by loved ones.
