Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one in any type of accident is devastating. Issues arise as to who may recover compensation in the result of an accidental death of a loved one. California law allows for the recovery of damages for the loss of love, society, comfort and companionship of the decedent. The law is also very specific about which family members of the decedent can recover for these losses, Damages for the loss of the decedent's past and future wages can also be an element of recoverable money damages. We are experienced trial attorneys that can help you determine who has the right to sue for any recovery based upon the wrongful death of a loved one, and how to preserve those rights to recover damages through the settlement process or trial.

Recovery can include reimbursement for medical expenses and loss of past and future wages, and for pain and suffering.
