There may be no event that is more traumatic for a family than to have a loved one taken due to another party’s negligence. Beyond the important role that he or she played in the family’s daily lives, there is also the tangible loss of the contributions your loved one made to the household. These are all things that can be addressed in a California wrongful death claim.
At the law firm of Farar & Lewis LLP, we know that the last thing you want after the loss of a loved one is to get into a complex and emotional legal proceeding with an uncaring insurance company. We will take care of all the legal issues for you. We diligently pursue full compensation for the personal and financial losses you have suffered and work to ensure that you have the support you need as you transition into this new chapter of your life.
Seeking Full Compensation For All Your Family’s Losses
There are a number of benefits that surviving family members can seek in a wrongful death claim. We work closely with you to gain a complete understanding of the contributions your loved one made to you, your children and your household so that we can develop a compelling case for maximum compensation.
Depending on the unique circumstances of your claim, it may be appropriate to seek any or all of the following damages:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of income your loved one contributed to the household
- Loss of inheritance that would have accrued over time
- Loss of household services your loved one provided
- Loss of care and companionship
Survivorship Actions On Behalf Of Your Loved One
If your loved one’s injuries were not immediately fatal, you may have grounds to pursue a separate survivorship action on his or her behalf. A survivorship action is, essentially, the personal injury claim your loved one would have been able to pursue had he or she lived. We review every wrongful death case we accept to determine whether a survivorship action would be viable.
