Unfortunately, there are numerous fatalities each year due to someone else’s negligence. And unfortunately, there is no amount of money that could ever bring back our loved ones. A wrongful death leaves the family in a state of utter sock. Regardless of how cautious or mindful one maybe, accidents happen all the time and in a blink of an eye everything could change. While our job is to zealously representing the surviving family through the legal system, we seeeach of our clients as our family members, and try to ease their pain, and help with the recoveryprocess for losing a loved one.
Generally, wrongful death claims are almost affected by liability insurance policies. Most often we will be fighting not only a reckless wrongdoer, but also his/her billion-dollar insurance company. We believe that insurance company lawyers and claim adjusters have one goal: to pay as little as possible to go away. Knowing liability insurance policies and knowing how liability insurance handle wrongful death claims will likely have a significant impact on your wrongful death case. For example, vehicle liability insurance varies significantly based on whether the vehicle is private passenger auto, motorcycle, self-insured rental car, commercial business auto, umbrella/excess policies, homeowner’s policy, etc.

Under California State Law, a wrongful death plaintiff can pursue compensation for any and all economic losses that have incurred as a result of the fatal accident, including the expense for medical treatment, funeral and burial costs and replacement for the value of household services that your family would have received from decedent. In addition, claim for damages includes loss of present and future financial contributions that the survivors could have expected in the form of income, gifts and benefits.On top of the economic damages you can claim in a wrongful death action, you can also demand noneconomic damages for your loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society and moral support, among other things. The goal in the case is to provide you with sufficient financial compensation to offset the considerable economic impact of your loss and to make it easier for you to move on in life.
