What is Considered Wrongful Death in North Dakota?

According to the North Dakota statute Section 32-21-01, a wrongful death is any death that was caused by the “act, neglect, or default” of another person. If this most unfortunate circumstance has occurred to a loved one, you are entitled to justice and, accordingly, compensation for your loss and pain.

What Are the Most Common Types of Wrongful Death Lawsuits in North Dakota?
  1. Car Accidents
    • Car accidents are common across the nation due to the volume of drivers and the risk of negligent drivers or distracted drivers, but it can be increasingly hazardous in North Dakota because of weather conditions, including very icy roads and snowfall.
  2. 18 Wheeler Accidents / Commercial Vehicle Accidents
    • Like car accidents, semi-trucks are also susceptible to all of the same risks, such as negligent driving, distracting driving, and weather conditions, but they are also accountable for the increased responsibility of the size of their vehicle and laws and regulations dictating factors like the hours of driving allowed and proper securing of freight.
  3. Workplace Accidents
    • Many professions in North Dakota carry substantial risks, which can range from oil work to transportation work to construction work to many more. All of these professions are required to adhere to safety laws set in place to protect the workers, but some employees may disregard these rules and introduce danger into the workplace.
  4. Medical Malpractice
    • Of course, North Dakotans have some of the best doctors, and we trust and appreciate our doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, but malpractice can and does sometimes occur, through negligence, miscommunication, or outright error. These mistakes can be in many forms and can be perpetrated by health care professionals of all ranks.
  5. Defective Products
    • Every product that is purchased should operate or function as advertised and as safety labeling explains. However, products can sometimes be defective through development error or faulty assembly, and those products put the purchaser at risk for wrongful harm. A defective product is not restricted to one type of industry or type of item, rather it encompasses any product that is defective and puts the purchaser at risk.

These are only 5 common types of wrongful death lawsuits. There can be many other instances of wrongful death that warrant representation by a wrongful death lawyer in North Dakota.
