Taser manufacturer faces federal lawsuit, may attempt to define more clearly: What is wrongful death?

CASE TYPES: Wrongful Death Cases

A stun gun manufacturer faces an unlawful death federal jury trial on claims it failed to provide sufficient warnings about the weapon’s risk for people with heart conditions. This wrongful death law case was reported in the January 14, 2013 volume of Virginia Lawyers Weekly.

After reviewing wrongful death statutes and case law, United States District Judge Glenn E. Conrad allowed claims to go forward against Taser International Inc. for the wrongful death of Daniel Russell. Russell was reportedly shot in the chest with a taser gun by police during a domestic dispute and later died of a cardiac arrest several months later. The plaintiff in the case is claiming that Taser’s warnings failed to emphasize the danger for people with heart conditions, like Russell.
