Proving Fault in Wrongful Death Accidents


Insurance companies take cases we handle seriously, as they know that our firm prepares each case as if it was going to trial in court. Our attorneys have represented insurance companies prior to devoting their practice to representing accident victims and their families. Because of our experience, we are intimately familiar with the tactics used by insurance companies to avoid paying out to families on wrongful death claims.

Our law firm overcomes this challenge by employing a hands-on approach. Where appropriate, we work with accident reconstructionists and safety engineers to evaluate forensic evidence in order to allocate fault. Our team of professionals will review police reports and witness statements to determine the cause of fatal accidents, involving:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Drunk driver accidents

 

Who Can Make a Wrongful Death Claim?


California law specifies the survivors who are entitled to pursue a claim for compensation following the wrongful death of a loved one. Most often, those are:

  • Spouse
  • Domestic partner
  • Child
  • Deceased child’s survivors

 

In specified circumstances, other parties also may be eligible to seek compensation. Among them are dependent minors who lived in the deceased’s household, stepchildren, parents, spouse and children of an invalid marriage.

Special considerations apply to the situations in which various parties might be able to assert a claim. For an accurate assessment of your situation, seek the advice of a qualified wrongful death attorney.

Our attorneys will negotiate aggressively on your behalf with the insurance companies to get you the maximum allowable compensation under the law for any lost income and support and for your pain after such a horrific loss.
