Having a child brings a whole new perspective into a parent’s life. The child quickly takes over your world. You dedicate everything you have into bringing up the child in the best possible way you know how. With so much love, emotion, and bonding invested in the child, it is unthinkable that anything bad could ever happen to him.
Unfortunately, there are times when bad things beyond your control take place. To some parents this means the loss of their child. This heart-wrenching loss often occurs due to the negligence of another party. When this occurs, it is known as a wrongful death.
Wrongful death accidents in Milwaukee involving children can happen because of a number of reasons, the most common being:
- Motor vehicle accidents. Motor vehicle accidents are dangerous for any passenger in the car. A child lacks the size, weight, and strength that an adult does. This makes them more susceptible to death in an accident.
- Water accidents. It only takes a matter of minutes before a child drowns. Lack of supervision, inexperienced lifeguards, murky water, malfunctioning equipment and head injuries may cause a child to drown.
- Poisoning. There are many substances that pose a threat to a child. Because children are small it does not take much for them to die because of an ingestion or inhalation of a dangerous substance.
Losing a child will be the most difficult time of your life. You should not have to go through the legal proceedings on your own. For the legal help you need, contact an experienced Wisconsin wrongful death attorney at Hupy and Abraham Call 800-800-5678 today for a free case evaluation.
