Wrongful Death Archives

Is arbitration right for your wrongful death claim?

Nobody really looks forward to all the anxiety and uncertainty of a trial in any type of a personal injury suit, including wrongful death claims. That's why many cases are settled out of court after the parties reach an agreement they can both tolerate.

An overridden emergency button claims a Charleston miner's death

West Virginia's Miner Health, Safety and Training Office (MHSTO) has recently completed their months' long investigation into a deadly mining accident that happened back in Charleston in June. Investigators have determined that it's likely that one of the equipment's emergency stop buttons might have been overridden, resulting in the 32-year-old Artie man's death.

Logging: The country's most dangerous profession

Logging is, statistically, the most dangerous career in the country -- nearly every part of the job exposes workers to the possibility of a deadly accident. In fact, those in the logging industry are 30 times more likely to die in a work-related accident than the average American employee.

People are dying inside U.S. hospitals -- but not just from the injuries and illnesses that brought them there and not from obvious causes, like a botched surgery or a bacterial infection. Instead, they're dying from something that's harder to define and harder still to fix: a systematic breakdown in communication and poorly coordinated care.
