It's always a shock when a loved one or close friend passes away. The sadness is often intermingled with confusion, especially if their death was unexpected. Even if you knew that your family member or friend was very sick and that their time was limited, their death was likely an event that stunned you. If you add in the possibility that this beloved person might still be alive had it not been for someone else's negligence or mistake, your loss could be particularly difficult to bear.
Searching for Answers
While no one believes that finding the truth behind a loved one's death will bring them back to you, doing so can help you find much needed closure. Knowing the circumstances and learning some answers to burning questions can help you come to terms with what happened to your loved one. It can also help prevent other families from going through what you are going through if it is something that can be prevented.
Could Your Loved One's Passing be Related to a Medical Mishap?
If you suspect that your loved one's death is not due to natural circumstances, it could warrant some additional resources and time spent on looking for the true cause. In some cases, your loved one might have been on a medication that was prescribed in the wrong manner that contributed to his or her death. Perhaps there was a medical procedure that your family member was undergoing at the time of their passing that you suspect had a role in their untimely death.
Workplace Accidents Could be Involved
Did your loved one pass away after becoming involved in a workplace incident or accident? Was there a period of sickness that your family member or close friend experienced prior to their death that you suspect might have originated from their time on the job? A wrongful death investigation could provide the answers that you seek.
Other Instances When a Wrongful Death Investigation Might be Warranted
Sometimes, an occurrence that seems fairly innocuous at the time -- a minor car accident or a simple fall at the store -- turns out to be a larger issue at a later date. Injuries sustained during an event such as this could ultimately lead to the passing of your loved one. There is nearly always someone at fault whose actions -- or inaction, as the case may be -- are the cause of your friend or family member's passing.
Hiring the Professionals to Get to the Bottom of a Wrongful Death
If your loved one or close friend passed away due to what you think might be a wrongful death, you might think you are the best person to research the situation in order to find the truth. While that might make sense because you have a vested interest in the outcome, it is this lack of objectivity that could cloud the process of gathering information as well as the results. Hiring an objective professional enables a pair of fresh eyes to view the situation -- both as a whole as well as all of its minute details. In addition, professionals, such as private investigators, have an extensive network of connections they can tap into to gather more information in a more timely manner than the general public often can.
