A wrongful death refers to the untimely death of a person/s due to accidents, criminal activities, or other person’s negligence. Wrongful death cases are being filed by the surviving dependents of a wrongful death victim. In filing a wrongful death claim, there exists the so-called statute of limitations that sets a time frame on when to file a lawsuit prior to the incident. This means that even valid claims cannot be filed after this period ends. Usually, wrongful death cases are hard to prove. They often take several years before they’re finally settled, and require expert and credible evidences and testimonies to establish the truth. The claimants are the ones who are responsible to prove the claim. Wrongful death attorneys only agree to handle a wrongful death case it they think it has a merit and find it to end up successfully. In most cases, the settlements range to millions of dollars. In most cases, wrongful death claims are being filed against medical practitioners such as a doctor or an entire department of a hospital. They can also be made against the manufacturers of a defective product such as a motorcycle, automobile, mechanical or electrical device, and many others. In such instances, the case can also be addressed to the manufacturers of the parts of the product, wholesalers and even designers. In addition, wrongful death can also be job-related like in the case where safety precautions were not followed. In the aforementioned grounds for a wrongful death claim, it is very important to present concrete evidences and comprehensive testimonies. Sometimes, defendants might offer the claimants huge amounts in out-of-court settlements to avoid damage to their reputation in the industry where they belong. If the claimants agree with this set-up, there is a less chance that a guilty verdict will be served against the defendant. However, this is not always the case because the facts of the case will already become public records. Finally, if the survivors of a wrongful death victim are considering filing a wrongful death claim, they must search, either locally or online, for legal specialists or reputable law firms that have remarkable trial experiences in this area of law. Remember that winning a wrongful death case can also have other consequences to the defendants aside from paying a certain amount for the actual damages. In other cases, the merits of the lawsuit itself can also result to the filing of criminal charges against the defendants. http://www.mesrianilaw.com/

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Morgan Smith Florida

Morgan Smith. Wow. Just, wow. She came from a family of mental illnesses with a father who committed suicide. She had spent her life on psychotropic drugs for severe depression and borderline personality disorder, the same thing that causes multiple personalities. She also became a sex slave for Daryl Smith in a long-term relationship that ended with a child.

Their relationship was everything the weird, late night, HBO documentaries say those things are. She met him after work and groveled at his feet in a leather outfit complete with chain leash and dog collar. She licked his boots clean and said thank you after he spanked her ass. She was a complete, total submissive, and seemed to enjoy being that way. She even changed her last name to his legally, even though he would not marry her. He had told her many times; no matter what she did, she would never be his wife.

Eventually he found another woman he was interested in, Andrea Stranko, and left Morgan and their
daughter. It devasta…

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
