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 carelessness, negligence, and the recklessness, of another person or persons. When someone drives recklessly, 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 do not know where to turn to for legal advice following the unexpected, accidental death of a loved one. If the death was accidental but was nevertheless caused 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.

What Types of Compensation Can Wrongful Death Attorneys Help Recover?

During your initial appointment, Paul will explain in detail how California’s wrongful death law applies to your family. After collecting the required information, he will help you decide on the best possible legal action course. If you pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, Paul will fight vigorously to seek the justice you deserve. He will take the time to make sure you understand every step of the legal process. If you have lost a loved one due to 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– let Paul fight for you. Paul helps wrongful death victim’s survivors 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 will need to understand that emotional distress and the loss of consortium are legally considered “non-economic” damages with no exact cash value. Hence, 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.
