Causes of wrongful death

Wrongful death may occur because of any number of circumstances, such as:

  • Traffic accidents — Everyday car or motorcycle accidents result in severe injuries and fatalities. This is especially true in truck accidents because the size of a big rig can cause massive damage, including brain injuries. Shealy, Crum & Pike, represents medical and car insurance companies that are being asked to make large payouts in accident cases.
  • Workplace injuries — Work-related accidents are common, especially in work sites such as manufacturing plants, construction zones or other job sites where large equipment or dangerous conditions exist. In many cases, catastrophic injuries occur, making the worker unable to work to support a family. Shealy, Crum & Pike, represents insurance providers and self-insured companies that have been sued for damages in a workplace injury case.
