The loss of a loved one can be an emotionally devastating event. Family and friends must carry on without their loved one. Particularly for families, it can also be a financially devastating event. Funeral expenses and loss of income can be problematic. If the death in question happened because of the wrong actions of another party, there may be a way to hold that party accountable for their actions.
A few weeks ago, we told you about a car manufacturer facing questions about the design of one of its minivans. Last year, a teenager died after he was pinned inside his minivan after a foldaway seat allegedly malfunctioned. Members of Congress have raised questions about whether the tragic incident happened because of a defective seat design. Across the political spectrum, lawmakers and government officials have called on further investigation of the situation.
It's been alleged that this death could have been prevented had the manufacturer recalled the minivan model to fix a defect. In cases where evidence proves that a manufacturer knows about a defect but does nothing to fix it, how can the manufacturer be held accountable? One way is through a wrongful death lawsuit.
