This is an extremely emotional and stressful time, and only a successful California wrongful death lawyer with expertise in this very specialized area of law should represent you. We will handle everything so that you can focus on grieving and putting your life back together.

The term wrongful death is defined as the loss of life wrongfully caused by another individual or entityís negligence. The claim is brought by the spouse, children and parents of the deceased. The heirs are entitled to damages for loss of their loved one, as well as funeral expenses and lost financial support. Often a survival action, a separate claim, can be brought by the victimís estate if the person lived for a time before injuries proved fatal, seeking damages for the hospital expenses and the victim's pain and suffering prior to death.
