Wrongful Death Litigation

Wrongful Death Litigation

Wrongful death is a legal term referring to cases brought by the family members of a deceased individual who lost his or her life as a result of the negligent acts of another.

A wrongful death lawsuit may be the result of a medical mistake, car accident, criminal act, work-related injury or other catastrophic event. The goal of a wrongful death lawsuit is to compensate family members for their financial and emotional losses. Depending on the case, a wrongful death lawsuit can seek damages for lost wages, mental anguish and loss of companionship or support.

Injury Wrongful Death

The value of your case depends on many factors, including the law in the state where the injury occurred. Other factors include how significant the damages are, how likely it is that our client will win the case, and what injuries the client suffered as a result of the Defendant’s wrongdoing. Also, a case is never worth more than the Defendant can pay.

Not all fatal personal injury cases qualify as a wrongful death or survival action claim, and it’s important to consult with a qualified Los Angeles attorney about your case. In addition to compensatory damages that cover costs incurred as a result of the bad conduct or negligence of the responsible party, you may also be entitled to additional monetary rewards.
