Wrongful Death Cases

  • More than 167,000 Americans died from accidental causes in 2018.
  • Among people between ages 1 and 44, accidental injuries are the No. 1 cause of death.
  • Pitt County had 67 deaths from accidents that were not traffic related in 2018.
  • Another 22 people died in Pitt County auto accidents 2018.

A huge percentage of these accidental deaths were caused by the negligence of someone other than the victim. Those are “Wrongful Deaths.”

Causes of Wrongful Deaths

1). Automobile Accidents 

Motor vehicles are among the most common causes of wrongful deaths. Cars, trucks, tractor-trailers, buses, and motorcycles can all be operated negligently. The circumstances of each case vary but too often the victim’s death results from someone operating a vehicle while engaged in one of these activities:

  • driving while distracted (texting, telephoning, adjusting music channels, applying makeup)
  • driving while impaired (drunk or drugged driving)
  • speeding faster than reasonable in poor weather or road conditions
  • reckless driving (driving in a manner so unsafe that a crash is more probable than not)
  • aggressive driving (tailgating, weaving between lanes, ignoring stop signs and red lights)
  • maintenance or design failures (unsafe tires, brakes, steering, lights)
  • commercial truckers exceeding allowed driving hours

The Clauson Law Firm carries on the pursuit of justice for your deceased loved one, to secure the financial future for their suffering survivors in Greenville and throughout Pitt County.

2). Medical Malpractice

Medical Mistakes are the third-leading cause of death in the United States. In North Carolina, more than $460 million dollars was paid out to victims of medical malpractice between 2009 and 2018.

  • misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • failure to treat when advised of symptoms and data
  • prescription drug errors
  • surgical errors
  • equipment malfunctions
  • incomplete or inaccurate pretesting
  • fatal infection/sepsis developed from negligent hospital practices

Winning a judgment against a hospital or doctor in Greenville requires specialized skills and a deep reservoir of financial resources. The Clauson Law Firm will hire expert medical consultants and analysts and collect all the documents related to your loved one’s case, investigate all the circumstances, and press those responsible for the medical errors to meet their financial obligation to the victim’s family.

3). Dangerous Drugs & Products

Thousands of Greenville residents were exposed to dangerous chemicals in commonly used products that cause cancer. Thousands more ingested dangerous prescription and over-the-counter drugs that caused cancer to develop or otherwise interfered with the functioning of vital organs.

The Clauson Law Firm considers defective products and dangerous drug cases to be of paramount importance to the well-being of society. The life of every Greenville area resident is endangered by the marketing of these items. We are proud to be the voice of the victims of these products.

4). Transportation Disasters (Airplanes, Trains, Buses)

Catastrophic transportation accidents bring tragedy to hundreds of families in a single incident. Rare though they are, these crashes are usually the result of negligence. Poor maintenance, insufficient training, or operator error kill and maim passengers who reasonably trust the companies who invite you to travel on their service.

  • May 12, 2015 Amtrak Northeast Regional – 8 dead, 200 injured
  • October 29, 2018, Boeing 737 Max 8 airplane – 189 dead
