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.
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:
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.
People that cause wrongful deaths must be held accountable for their conduct. Filing your wrongful death claim may prevent a similar tragedy from happening to another family in the future.
