Most accidents may result in the wrongful death of a family member. Under California law, a close relative or family member may bring a civil action against the negligent and responsible parties who caused the accident resulting in your loved one's death. While any recourse will not bring your loved one back, it is essential that the responsible parties be held accountable for their actions, and we will diligently represent the rights of your deceased loved one.
Some of the most common accidents which may result in a wrongful death include:
- Accidental Death;
- Auto Accidents;
- Airplane Crashes;
- Premises liability;
- Construction accidents;
- Defective products or dangerous materials;
- Medical malpractice;
- Daycare injuries.
If a loved one has been killed in an accident, it is important to contact a wrongful death lawyer to review the facts of their fatal incident. If after our free initial consultation you decide to pursue a claim for wrongful death, our attorney will file the necessary documents against the person responsible for the accident.
All of the staff at our law firm understand that no amount of monetary compensation will bring back your loved one, but we also strongly believe that people must pay for their actions. Additionally, the money recovered from a wrongful death lawsuit can assist with any outstanding medical expenses, funeral costs, as well as income replacement if the deceased was the primary income earner.
