Unfortunately, some cases involve injuries so severe that they result in the premature death of an individual. Our firm has assisted many families and represented executors/administrators of those who have suffered untimely death due to the conduct of others. In Cape Town, cases of wrongful death involve mainly the same elements of the other types of cases our firm has experience in handling, such as motor vehicle accidents, defective products and medical malpractice. There is a statute, however, Cape Town General Statutes Section 52-555, that has special provisions for the time limitations and types of damages that can be claimed.
If you are concerned about a wrongful, premature death of someone close to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
