Wrongful Death Archives

A child's death is the most difficult event in a person's life

It's one thing to look at statistics about childhood fatalities or to consider the reasons why a child may pass away during birth or in the hospital after birth. It is quite another to really think about the trauma that this presents for the parents and how their lives will never be the same.

What is the most common type of cancer?

You hear a lot about breast cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You know that exposure to radiation can lead to cancer, which is why your dentist steps out of the room during x-rays. You understand that lung cancer is very serious, and you see warnings about it on every pack of cigarettes.

What to consider if your loved one dies in a hospital

If your loved one passes away in a hospital, it's no doubt a very difficult time for your family. You may not really understand what happened, why it happened or how it could have been prevented. It's very important to dig into this so that you know where you stand and what options you have.

Most Americans die in the hospital

When you ask people where they would like to pass away, when that day finally comes, the vast majority of them simply pick their homes. They would like to be at home, likely surrounded by their loved ones. That's what about 80 percent of people choose when asked, and you probably fall into that number as well.
