Have you lost a loved one as a result of the carelessness or wrongdoing of another? While there is no amount of money that can take away the pain and sadness you are suffering, the law provides various forms of compensation for you and your family during this difficult time. You may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim against the negligent parties who caused the accident that led to your loss. A wrongful death attorney at Injury Law Group can help you protect your family's 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.

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 usually plays a big factor in determining whether a person or entity is liable for the loss of your loved one. This is because negligent parties will usually point the finger and blame another person or entity for the loss of your loved one. 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.
