Best Rated Wrongful Death Lawyers

A wrongful death claim must be brought on behalf of the “actual parties in interest,” which are the people who have been hurt by the death of the deceased. Most of the time, the executor of the deceased person’s estate is the representative.

 

When someone dies because of the fault of another person or group, this is called wrongful death or negligent death. Those left behind by a loved one who has died can file a lawsuit against the person or group at fault to get money for the harm they have suffered because of the death.

California's Best Wrongful Death Attorney

In wrongful death cases, we have to show that the defendant’s carelessness, recklessness, or negligence caused all or part of the death of the plaintiff’s family member. No matter what happened, losing a loved family member is the most heartbreaking thing that can happen. It’s much worse when someone dies because of an accident or an act of evil. When the victim dies when they are at their best, they leave behind family members who depend on them for emotional and financial support. Our skilled lawyers for wrongful death can help you with your case.

FAQs

A wrongful death is any death that happens because of someone else’s carelessness, wrongdoing, lack of care, or inaction. Depending on the circumstances, deaths caused by things like car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, bad products, or police brutality could be called “wrongful deaths.”

In California, a wrongful death suit can be filed by the victim’s spouse first, then by the victim’s children or the children of the victim’s children who have already died, if there are any. If none of these things are true, the victim’s parents, siblings, or other family members may file a wrongful death suit.

In California, most cases of wrongful death must be filed within two years of the death of the person who was hurt. But different statutes of limitations may apply in certain situations. For example, the deadline may be extended if the plaintiff is a minor or has a mental disability. Also, any case against a government entity (like a city, school district, or fire district) must be preceded by the filing of a California government tort claim, which has a 180-day deadline.

When a wrongful death case is won, the amount of compensation depends on many things. In a wrongful death case, the final amount of compensation will take into account both the financial and emotional problems that were caused by the death. Damages in a wrongful death case can include medical bills, funeral costs, loss of financial support, expected earnings, loss of benefits, pain and suffering, emotional anguish, loss of companionship, and punitive damages.

Yes. Criminal violence is a type of intentional wrongdoing that can give rise to a claim for money. You could file a lawsuit against the criminal, but you might also be able to file a lawsuit against a business that has enough insurance to pay your family back. This could happen, for example, if your loved one was attacked at a business that didn’t have enough security.

Patrick handled my case very well, we received more that expected in the settlement and I really had very little to do. A few trip to the doctors office and I was done. I would definitely recommend Patrick to anyone pursuing a workers’ compensation or personal injury claim.
