In today’s busy and hectic world, danger is everywhere – and we take it for granted. Legally, a “wrongful death” is any accidental death caused by the carelessness, negligence, or recklessness of another person or persons. When someone drives recklessly or under the influence, or a property owner fails to fix a safety railing, the result can be wrongful death.
In the state of California, many people do not know where to turn for legal advice following the unexpected, accidental death of a loved one. If the death was accidental but was nevertheless due to the negligence of another person or persons, a wrongful death claim may help the surviving family members in receiving the compensation they need.
The Maineri Law Firm Can Provide Help for Devastated Families
The Maineri Law Firm has been fighting for justice for the families of victims of wrongful death for over two decades and has extensive legal experience in California.
Although every wrongful death claim is different, you can rest assured that the Maineri Law firm will bring the same dedicated effort to every case and every client. In California, regardless of how a wrongful death occurs, if another person’s negligence results in the death of a loved one, that person should be held accountable, and a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed.
When Can a Family File a Wrongful Death Action in California?
Wrongful deaths can occur as the result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence – whether it be in a workplace or traffic-related accident, or because of a fall or by drowning, or even due to a hospital or nursing home’s malpractice. No amount of money can ease the pain, suffering, and grief of a family shattered by the unexpected loss of a family member. The family should immediately contact an experienced wrongful death attorney. Wrongful death lawyers fight for the family’s rights and act in their best long-term interests. Allow the Maineri Law Firm to represent you and your family following a wrongful death.
There is no doubt that the time following the wrongful death of a loved one is the most challenging for you and your family, but wrongful death claims must be filed as quickly as possible. While money does not alleviate pain, wrongful death settlements can provide assistance to families that would otherwise succumb to the financial hardships following a wrongful death. If you are the parent, child, or spouse of someone who has lost their life in wrongful death, contact the Maineri Law Firm for help.
What Types of Compensation Can Wrongful Death Attorneys Help Recover?
During your initial appointment, we will explain in detail how California’s wrongful death law applies to your family. After collecting the required information, we will help you decide on the best possible legal course of action. If you pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, we will fight vigorously to obtain the justice you deserve. We will take the time to make sure you understand every step of the legal process. We help the families of wrongful death victims seek compensation for:
- Loss of income or learning capacity, including the loss of benefits.
- Medical treatment costs incurred before death.
- Funeral expenses and burial or cremation costs.
- Loss of inheritance or loss of consortium
Survivors of a wrongful death incident should understand that emotional distress and the loss of consortium are legally considered “non-economic” damages to which no precise cash value can initially be assigned. As such, the amount of any award for emotional distress or loss of consortium is decided by the judge or a jury in cases where this amount cannot be agreed upon in out-of-court negotiations between attorneys for both parties.
