How Can Wrongful Death Lawyers Help Families Seek Justice?

The loss of a loved one can leave you wondering which way is up. You shouldn’t take on the stress of a wrongful death claim at a time like this. Fortunately, you don’t need to. A wrongful death lawyer from our firm can handle every aspect of your case while you grieve, celebrate your loved one, and spend time with your family. 
Below, we’ll detail all the ways our wrongful death lawyers can help you and your family seek justice through a wrongful death claim

Manage Deadlines

California’s statute of limitations states how long you have to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you fail to file within this time you risk recovering nothing. You have enough on your plate right now; our wrongful death attorneys will manage this timeline to ensure we have enough time to take action. However, we can’t manage this timeline if you don’t call us early enough.

Fund the Case’s Expenses

A wrongful death case can cost you thousands or more out of pocket. To help you seek justice, a wrongful death lawyer can fund your case’s expenses, leaving you to pay only small fees, such as a copying fee. Be sure you discuss this with the attorney you choose to ensure there are no surprise fees.

Emotional Support

Our law firm will also give you the emotional support you need. This is an exceptionally difficult time for you and your family and we want to ensure we do anything we can do to make the legal process easier for you.  

A Source of Knowledge and Experience

Nuestro de lesiones personales pueden will be a source of knowledge throughout your case. Through our experience with wrongful death cases, we have learned: 

  • What tactics insurers use to devalue claims
  • How to predict and build defenses against these tactics
  • How to negotiate a settlement you deserve

We also understand the complexities of California’s wrongful death laws and can help you make sense of them.

Determine a Value for Your Case

Many people don’t know the true value of their case and settle for much less than they deserve. A wrongful death attorney from our firm will identify all your damages and then determine a fair settlement value for your case. A wrongful death attorney can help you fight for fair compensation for: 

  • Gastos médicos
  • Funeral expenses and burial costs
  • Loss of income and financial support
  • Lost gifts and benefits
  • Lost services
  • Lost “love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, and moral support”
  • Loss of consortium (intimacy)
  • Loss of guidance

The recoverable compensation for your loved one’s wrongful death depend on the specifics of your case.

Build a Robust Case

We will handle every aspect of building your case. We will identify the liable party, gather evidence, and prove liability. To prove liability, we’ll establish the following: 

  • The at-fault party owed your loved one a duty of care.
  • They breached that duty by behaving negligently. 
  • The negligence caused your loved one’s accident and injury. 
  • You suffered damages from this accident.

Protect You from Insurance Companies

Insurance companies want to pay you as little as possible for a claim. This means that they will likely be looking for any way possible to devalue or deny your claim. This may involve:

  • Getting you to give a recorded statement: The insurance adjuster will use whatever you say against you. 
  • Arguing that your loved one caused or contributed to the accident or their injuries
  • Refusing to pay a valid claim
  • Trying to get you to settle a claim early in the process: Adjusters are hoping that you are desperate for money and would be willing to accept whatever you can get.
  • Persuading you to handle your wrongful death claim without legal representation.

Our team knows all these tactics. We will handle communication and negotiation so you don’t need to worry about accepting a low settlement or saying something that jeopardizes your case. 

Handle Your Case With No Upfront Fees

Wrongful death attorneys want you to focus on celebrating your loved one’s life, not on how you’ll afford legal help. This is why we take cases on a contingency-fee basis. You pay us no upfront or hourly fees and only pay us a percentage of your settlement when we win your case. 

There is no financial risk to you and you can rest assured that we are dedicated to your case succeeding as you are.
