Legal options after the tragic death of a loved one

Families in California who lose a loved one in a tragic accident can often be left reeling from the incident, wondering what went wrong, if the situation could have been prevented and how they will move forward. No one is prepared for a loved one’s sudden, tragic death, but, as the family moves forward, they will probably begin to piece together their options, including their legal ones.

When a loved one dies as a result of another party’s negligent or reckless conduct, a wrongful death lawsuit may be a possibility. In pursuing such a case, the family would be attempting to secure financial compensation to help with the expenses associated with the tragedy, such as medical and funeral expenses, as well as compensation to attempt to make up for the loss of wages that the deceased person would have earned in their life.

Unfortunately, even when a grieving family knows that they may have a valid wrongful death claim, they may not pursue it. Some people may think that it is better to put the past behind them rather than face the potential of re-living the tragedy in courtrooms and depositions, or seeing horrible photos of the accident in question or the injuries that the deceased suffered.

At our law firm, we do our best to help families navigate their legal options in a wrongful death case, while still being mindful of the profound impact the sudden death of a loved one can have on a person.
