Wrongful Death Lawyers in Oakland

When a loved one is killed or dies from a negligent act of another, it is called, “wrongful death.” The attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers are readily available to help get you compensation for losing a loved one. Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is an award-winning personal injury law firm that has represented hundreds of families who have suffered the loss of a loved one. Many people have died from the negligence of another and it is important for surviving family members to know that you can seek compensation for their loss.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

The surviving spouse, family members, and/or children can file a wrongful death claim for their lost loved one. However, if you were not blood-related or tied by marriage, you may be able to file a claim. It is imperative to seek legal representation soon after your loved ones’ death, as there is a statute of limitation for a wrongful death claim. This means you have a certain amount of time to seek justice and file a lawsuit or claim.
