Motor Vehicle Accidents
One of the leading causes of death in the country is motor vehicle accidents. The majority of motor vehicle accidents occur due to either party not paying attention to traffic regulations, driving while distracted, texting, or DUI. These crashes do not always result in fatalities or catastrophic injuries, but many do.
People involved in a motor vehicle accident in Del Norte County or any other county in California must prove they were not at fault and that the accident caused their injuries. As California is an at-fault state, the liable party must compensate the victim for serious injuries sustained in the accident.
Medical negligence and car accidents can result in wrongful death lawsuits if the victim dies due to negligence. In these cases, compensation is sought for those who have died due to the negligence of others.
The concept of wrongful death differs from the concepts of murder and manslaughter. A murder case means the liable party had the intent to kill the other person and willingly killed that person, which differs from a negligence case in which the liable party could not have prevented the accident.
In other words, if a negligent party causes the death of another, you are seeking compensation for the deceased’s family instead of punishing the responsible party, as in manslaughter charges.
