Last year, the Institute of Medicine reported that approximately 90 percent of all medical malpractice lawsuits were based on claims of wrongful death or permanent disability. That same year, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced that nearly 40,000 wrongful deaths occurred as the result of car accidents. When negligence, recklessness or carelessness results in the death of an individual, surviving family members will have a strong wrongful death claim and may be entitled to a settlement for their losses.
