Children are delicate beings. Their bodies respond to the smallest of changes. This is especially true with toxins invading and attacking the body. Children’s small bodies can only handle so much. Unfortunately, poisoning is one of the common causes for child wrongful death accidents.
When a child is lost, it dramatically affects a number of people. Parents, siblings and their loved ones will experience grief, anger, depression, and confusion as they try to understand how something so horrific can happen.
Poisoning may cause a child’s death in a number of ways. When it is partially or completely the fault of another party, that person should be held responsible. You can do so by filing a wrongful death claim.
Some of the common causes for poison related wrongful death accidents in Milwaukee are:
- Medication. The sensitive body of a child can only handle certain types of medication. Combining certain medications can be extremely dangerous and in some cases may be the cause of a death to a child.
- Household products. All household products should always be properly labeled and contained in childproof containers. If this is not properly done, a child may access it and ingest or inhale the product, leading to death.
- Food. Expired, moldy, mishandled, or undercooked food poses a great danger to anyone who eats it. In some instances it may even cause death in a child.
If you child suffered and died due to a poisoning, you may be entitled to compensation. As hard as it may seem to do, it is important to hold the responsible party accountable.
