Wrongful Death Attorney

The untimely death of a loved one caused by the neglect or carelessness of another has immediate repercussions.

Survivors of wrongful death face an overwhelming number of challenges. If the loved one contributed to the support of the family, the family is suddenly burdened by the grief of the loss compounded by financial hardships and an uncertain future. While no legal victory can replace a loved one, the law provides that the surviving heirs are entitled to certain forms of compensation for the losses they have endured.

Our years of experience in successfully handling wrongful death claims help us to work with survivors to fully understand and appreciate the magnitude of each loss, and can assist you in determining if there are insurance benefits available for your family.

In California, juries can award damages for the following losses in a wrongful death case:

  • Loss of financial support that the decedent would have contributed to the family in the future
  • Loss of the love, companionship, comfort, affection, solace, and moral support of the deceased
  • Value of the loss of the household services the deceased would have provided in the future
  • Funeral and burial expenses
