Why do you need an attorney for this?

Wrongful death cases can be incredibly complex, and they often pit family members of the deceased against aggressive insurance carriers and major companies. A wrongful death attorney will have the resources and legal experience necessary to conduct a full investigation into the case.

A skilled wrongful death attorney will work with economic and financial experts to calculate a family’s total losses and negotiate with all parties involved to secure a fair settlement. If the other parties do not offer a fair amount, your attorney will fully prepare the case for trial.

How do wrongful death cases arise?

Wrongful death cases arise anytime somebody is killed due to the negligent, careless, or intentional actions of another person. In these cases, California law allows the following people to file a wrongful death claim:

  • A surviving spouse or domestic partner
  • Any surviving children of the deceased
  • Any surviving family members (including parents and siblings)
  • A personal representative of the deceased person’s estate

At Rise Law Firm, our wrongful death attorneys regularly help clients who have lost a loved one due to the following:

  • Vehicle accidents
  • Semi-truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Construction accidents or other workplace incidents
  • Premises liability incidents
  • and more

Under California law, there is generally a two-year statute of limitations in place for these cases. This means that family members have two years from the date of the deceased person’s death to file a claim. Failing to file a claim within this timeframe could result in victims being unable to secure compensation for their losses.

What kind of compensation is available for this?

If you have lost a loved one due to the wrongful actions of another person, company, or entity, contact an attorney as soon as possible. At Rise Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping family members secure the compensation they deserve in these cases. This could include:

  • Loss of future income and benefits of the deceased
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of consortium or companionship damages
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Cost of pre-death medical care
  • Punitive damages against the negligent party
