California Wrongful Death Law
Have you lost a loved one to negligence?
It is difficult to imagine a loss worse than the death of a child, parent, spouse, or sibling. The loss can be even more difficult to accept when it was caused by the careless actions of another. Typical wrongful death claims and lawsuits usually stem from:
In some cases, the individual passes away while an insurance company dithers about authorizing life-saving surgery. In such instances, the insurance company may be held liable for wrongful death.
If you lost a loved one prematurely due to the negligible acts of another party, we encourage you to contact a California wrongful death lawyer at The Dunnion Law Firm. With
more than 175 years of collective experience among us, we have what it takes to help you file a claim or lawsuit in Northern California.
Damages in Wrongful Death Claims in Northern CA
Taking legal action after the tragic loss of a loved one may not be at the top of your priority list; however, doing so could help prevent a similar incident from occurring in the future. No one can bring back your loved one, but obtaining a wrongful death award to compensate for financial losses and to hold the responsible party liable could help bring closure to this difficult time in your life.
Damages for wrongful death may include financial compensation to cover the costs of:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral costs
- Burial fees
- Lost income to the family
Loss of comfort, love, and care from the decedent are also major components of any settlement. In the case of especially serious wrongdoing, punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer are appropriate and should be pursued. Since 1975, The Dunnion Law Firm has been advocating for justice on behalf of the wrongfully injured and mourning family members. We are ready to do the same for you.
