Wrongful Death Attorney

Have you lost a loved one as a result of a car accident, motorcycle crash, or other careless act or wrongdoing of another?  To our grieving clients, we extend our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to you and your family for your loss.   You are likely looking for an attorney because your family wants justice.  In California, the District Attorney is the only person or entity who can bring criminal charges.  You and your lawyer cannot do that.  Your legal remedy is that your attorney can help you obtain financial compensation for you and your family.  As spouse, child, parent, or a sibling, you may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim against the negligent parties who caused the car or motorcycle accident, or other incident of carelessness, that led to your loss.  Clearly there is no amount of money that can take away your pain and sadness during this difficult time, or ever.  Within this constraint (that the only legal remedy available is financial compensation), we will represent you to the fullest extent under the law.  You need to act now.  There are strict time limitations on bringing your claim.  If you wait too long, you will be forever barred from bringing your claim.  Call us today and let a wrongful death attorney at Injury Law Group protect your family’s legal rights.

A San Diego Wrongful Death Attorney Can Protect Your Legal Rights

After a trajedy in which you lost a loved one as a result of someone else’s wrongful or careless conduct, the law provides you with the legal remedy of bringing a wrongful death action. Through this remedy, a San Diego wrongful death attorney secure payment of the medical bills incurred by your family member prior to his or her passing. Your family can also recovery damages for the pain and suffering that you have suffered (but not for the pain and suffering experienced by your loved one) between the time of the accident and the time of passing. You can also recovery burial costs, which can often be a significant cost that puts a financial strain on your family. In appropriate cases, you can obtain payment for damages to vehicles and property. Financial compensation is also available for loss of companionship, though the amount of this type of compensation is very difficult to predict as there is no set formula for quantifying such a loss. Causation is always a difficult factor and each situation must be looked at on a case-by-case to nail down and determine whose conduct was wrongful and whether that wrongful conduct is the direct cause of the death of your loved one.

Who Can Bring a Claim

Typically, a wrongful death claim is brought by a surviving spouse or children of the person who has passed. In some cases, other family members, such as parents, may bring a claim for their loss and suffering. Your attorney will discuss all of your options and determine the best course of action, including who can and should bring a legal claim against the negligent actors.

Causation Issues

Causation usually plays a big factor in determining whether a person or entity is liable for the loss of your loved one. This is because the negligent driver or other person who is responsible will typically blame the person who has passed away since they are not here to defend themselves.   Your lawyer that you hire must be their voice.   You need an aggressive lawyer who will make sure that the truth is revealed and that justice is served. Wrongful death cases usually pose multiple potentially liable parties, many backed by a strong legal defense because their insurance carriers have a huge exposure.  During your initial consultation, your attorney will review any causation issues and explain them to you and help you understand the implications and ramifications they may pose to the outcome of your case.
