As your representatives in an accidental death case, the Boston accident attorneys of Feinberg & Alban, P.C. understand that—while no amount of compensation can truly make up for the loss of your loved one—you have the right to demand accountability from those responsible. We are committed to protecting the rights of our clients as they seek justice.
What is wrongful death?
Wrongful death — also known as accidental death — typically occurs when an individual loses his or her life due to the negligent action or inaction of another. Numerous types of personal injuries and accidents could result in wrongful death:
- automobile accidents
- pedestrian accidents
- truck and bus accidents
- work accidents
- medical malpractice
- nursing home negligence
- defective products
- slip-and-fall accidents
- bicycle accidents
- negligent security
According to a 2007 survey reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC), unintentional injury is the leading cause of death in the United States. Moreover, the majority of these injuries occur in motor vehicle accidents, which are often a result of negligence. Statewide, unintentional injury is the fifth-leading cause of death overall in Massachusetts, although it is the number one cause of death for individuals aged one to 45 years old.
