Bernie Macs Widow Files a Wrongful Death Claim

 Posted on August 06, 2010 in Uncategorized

An Associated Press article posted at 9 NEWS, reports that "Bernie Mac's widow has filed a wrongful death lawsuit" against the comedian's longtime dermatologist. The comedian's widow, Rhonda McCullough, believes that the doctor failed to recognize "indications of respiratory failure" in Mac while at the dermatologist's clinic a few weeks before his death. McCullough alleges that the doctor kept Mac at the clinic for several hours instead of calling for an ambulance and emergency help after Mac began to show signs of respiratory trouble. Rene M. Earles, Mac's dermatologist, disputes McCullough's account of the events and says that when he found out from Mac's family doctor that Mac had been diagnosed with pneumonia he "immediately advised Mac to go to a hospital."

A wrongful death lawsuit will not bring a loved one back, but it may help alleviate some of the financial burden that comes from their unexpected death. Having a qualified and knowledgeable attorney during this time is crucial. The right attorney can ensure a timely investigation of the circumstances surrounding the death and can even help determine what might have caused the death.

A suspected drunk driver drove for nearly six miles the wrong way on I-25 before colliding with another vehicle and killing a woman. According to the Denver Post, the incident started at around 11p.m. Monday night when 35-year-old Elizabeth Long started driving south in the northbound lanes of I-25 at 104th Avenue. Authorities say Long struck at least one vehicle at Thornton Parkway before colliding with a vehicle at 58th Avenue and killing the passenger. Long was booked into the Adams County Jail on multiple charges stemming from the accident.

In Colorado, DUI and impaired offenses are misdemeanors; injury-related DUI offenses are class 4 felonies. According to Alcoholalert.Com, between 2000 and 2008 there were 5,703 total traffic fatalities in the state of Colorado with 2,267 of those fatalities being alcohol related.

Time is crucial. In the state of Colorado, you have only 3 years after an automobile accident to file a claim. This is known as the statute of limitations. If your injuries were the result of an accident with a government vehicle or public transportation, you may have even less time to file a claim and receive compensation for your injuries.
