Tragedy of a Fatal Accident
A death is considered “wrongful” by law when it is determined that someone else’s act of negligence, reckless behavior, or intentional conduct caused or contributed to the death. There are a wide range of causes of wrongful death. Some of the most common include the following:
- Fatal Car Accident – Occupants of passenger vehicles, vans, and large trucks in addition to motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and others on the road are at risk of suffering catastrophic injury and death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that motor vehicle collisions throughout the United States are the leading cause of death for individuals ranging from 5 to 34 years old.
- Medical Malpractice – There are many forms of medical negligence that can result in death, including birth injuries, surgical errors, misdiagnosis, anesthesia mistakes, and emergency department negligence. Patients can suffer injury and illness or experience complications that lead to death.
- Workplace Accidents – According to the CDC, every day, approximately 15 workers die in the U.S. from traumatic injuries. Recent statistics indicate that over 5,400 workers were killed by an occupational injury and more than 4 million workers experienced a nonfatal injury or illness on the job annually. While safety rules and regulations are updated regularly, deadly workplace accidents, especially for construction workers, continue to take place at alarming rates.
- Defective Products – Auto defects, dangerous drug side effects, faulty children’s toys, contaminated food, and other products have caused the death of unsuspecting consumers. Manufacturers of products that are poorly designed, mislabeled, or defective may be held liable for any deaths their products cause.

"I am a motor vehicle versus pedestrian, accident survivor. Although struck in a crosswalk outside my clinic. As a physician, I’ve had to deal and negotiate with insurance companies in the healthcare arena my entire career. Consequently, I felt that legal counseling would be the safest and most prudent way to approach this unfortunate circumstance. Having researched the numerous legal offices on the internet, Marasco and Nesselbush had a very strong and positive presence, and I must sincerely and wholeheartedly agree.
The Firm, and my M&N attorney, represented me in the most professional and experienced manner, and with ethics of the highest standards, during a significantly emotional time in my life. My M&N attorney was knowledgeable and compassionate about my case and situation. He came to my home the very day I contacted his law firm, thoroughly explained every detail clearly and distinctly, and honestly answered all of my questions. He was genuine, personal, reliable, and patient, offering not only professional support and responsible legal counsel, but also friendship and guidance during a difficult time and situation in my life. He and his staff have earned my deepest trust and respect. I wholeheartedly recommend Marasco and Nesselbush."
