When you have lost a loved one due to devastating injuries they sustained in a car accident, construction incident, or a serious slip and fall, it can be difficult to see how you will be able to move on following their death. You want to feel secure, both emotionally and financially, but any sense of security seems to be very far away. As a wrongful death attorney in Los Angeles, we’ve handled many tragic cases, and work to build a family-like relationship with our clients, honoring both their feelings and the memory of the one they’ve lost.
It can be difficult to watch a family member suffer from a serious injury, and if that injury eventually causes their death, it’s important that your family is able to cover medical bills, funeral costs, and living expenses that are incurred after the deceased’s income is lost. You may have been planning to contact an attorney to file a personal injury claim on your loved one’s behalf, but now that they’ve died, the case will become a wrongful death suit. The surviving spouse, domestic partner, or children of the deceased can file the claim, and our legal team will walk you through every step of the process.
When filing a wrongful death claim in California, there are a number of damages that are available to the family of the deceased. We’ll explain each one and how it pertains to your case, and what you can expect in terms of compensation and when you should receive a ruling on your claim. Above all, we want to build a relationship of trust and compassion with you and your family, so that you can rest assured that the very best attorneys are handling your case.
