Losing a loved one to another person’s negligence is unthinkable. No amount of money can compensate you for the loss of a loved one, and a settlement or verdict will not bring your family member back.

When we represent you, we will listen to your story, investigate the accident, handle the insurance claim, and when necessary, represent you in court. We proudly represent the family members of those whose lives have been lost in tragic accidents and stand ready to help you.

What Is A Wrongful Death Claim and Who Can File One?
If you have incurred substantial costs or lost income as a result of the accident that took your loved one’s life, monetary damages can help you get back on your feet financially so you can properly grieve. The purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit is to compensate bereaved family members when someone else’s negligence results in a tragic, untimely death. The law is constructed to help families shoulder the financial burdens that stem from these situations.
In California, the deceased’s heirs or the personal representative of his/her estate can file a wrongful death claim.

Compensation in a Wrongful Death Case
Losing a loved one is difficult in many ways, including financially. When you relied on the deceased individual financially, it is important to meet with a wrongful death attorney about how much your claim is worth so that you can cover many of the costs associated with his or her passing.
Our team will fight for you and your family to receive compensation for:
- Funeral and burial expenses;
- Medical bills incurred between the date of the accident and death;
- Loss of decedent’s income and employment benefits;
- Loss of future inheritance;
- Loss of the value of decedent’s household services; and
