Wrongful Death Attorney

Have you lost a loved one as a result of a car accident, motorcycle crash, aviation accident, or other careless act or negligence of another?  To our grieving clients, we extend our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies for your loss.  You are likely reading this because you seek justice and need an attorney to advocate and be a voice for your family.  In California, only the District Attorney (D.A.) for your county has the ability to bring criminal charges against the defendant. Criminal proceedings are exclusively handled by the D.A. You and your lawyer cannot do that.  Your sole legal remedy is to file a civil action for wrongful death to obtain compensation for loss of financial support and loss of consortium. Loss of consortium refers to the loss of the love, affection, companionship, and physical relationship that was taken from you. 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.  There is no amount of money that can take away your pain and sadness during this difficult time, or ever.  You cannot place a value on human life. We can help you bring your civil action for wrongful death and we will represent you to the fullest extent under the law.  But you cannot wait to bring your claim. You need to act now.  There are strict time limitations for bringing your wrongful death claim, frequently as short as six months depending upon the circumstances of your matter.  If you wait too long, you will be forever barred from bringing your claim and the defendant will be absolved from all liability and never held accountable for their negligent actions. We are personal injury and wrongful death lawyers. We are here to help you.  If you have lost a loved one in a car or motorcycle accident, or in an airplane crash, call us now and let an experienced car accident lawyer, motorcycle lawyer, or aviation accident lawyer at Injury Law Group protect you and 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.
