Your options after the wrongful death of a loved one

The unexpected loss of a loved one is traumatic and painful, especially if the reckless or negligent actions of another person caused his or her death. In addition to the emotional pain and suffering you could be feeling, medical bills and other end-of-life expenses can also cause you and your family additional suffering.

In the difficult weeks and months after the wrongful death of a loved one, you can depend on an experienced California attorney to guide you through the complications ahead. If another party is liable for the fatal incident, you have a rightful claim to compensation for your financial losses and emotional duress. Your legal ally will fight for the recovery you deserve.

Recovery for your financial losses and expenses

There is no amount of compensation that can undo the damage already done, but you have the right to seek recovery for any of the losses that you experience, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of income of the deceased
  • Loss of companionship and consortium
  • Emotional trauma and mental anguish

You cannot reverse what happened, but with the right help, you can move forward toward a future that is free from unnecessary financial and legal concerns. It is important to hold liable parties accountable for what happened to your family, which is why it is important to take appropriate action immediately after a fatal accident.

If your loved one did not die at the time of the accident, but passed away at a later date as a direct result of what he or she suffered, you could have grounds to file a survivor claim. This enables you to recoup the losses you incurred between the time of the accident and the time of death.

Strong, capable guidance during a difficult time

During your time of grief, you may not know if you have a case or care to deal with legal complications during this difficult time. This is understandable, but when you have the help of a lawyer, you can focus on other important matters. You can be sure of the upholding of your legal rights and representation of your best interests. If you believe that you have valid grounds for a wrongful death claim, you would be wise to protect your future interests by securing the legal guidance you deserve.
