Downey Wrongful Death Lawyers

Downey Wrongful Death Attorney- Andrew L. Ellis Andy Ellis is one of the most successful Wrongful Death lawyers in Los Angeles California. Meet Mr. Ellis and find out how he helps his clients who have a wrongful death case.

The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, be it a spouse, domestic partner, parent, child, or other close relation, can not only cause extreme emotional distress but can also result in tough financial burdens for the surviving family members. Things such as lost wages, needing to hire additional help for household tasks, and covering the costs of a funeral and memorial services are just a few of the expenses that family members are met with during their time of grief. You don’t have to go it alone, though.  

If you’ve lost a loved one due to another person’s actions (or lack of action), you may be eligible for compensation from the liable parties. The Downey wrongful death lawyers from Ellis Law care about you and your family’s wellbeing and will work hard to fight for the compensation you deserve.   

Finding those responsible  

Wrongful death cases are when a loved one was wrongfully taken from us due to the results of harmful, reckless, or malicious action from another party or person, or due to their lack of action to address, remove, or warn of hazards and other dangers. In some instances, it may difficult to decipher exactly which party was at fault for the incident, and may even be the result of several parties’ negligence.  

Examples of liable parties include: 

  • Worker or manufacturing company responsible for defective equipment, products, or machinery 
  • A drunk, distracted, or reckless driver that caused an auto accident 
  • A doctor, nurse, surgeon, or medical institute that acted unethically or responded in a way different from what other professionals would have responded 
  • Workplaces, apartment buildings, public spaces, construction sites, and other location owners who exposed individuals to toxins, chemicals, and other harmful substances 
  • Owner of a firearm who either used it directly in a criminal act such as robbery or murder, through a firearm accident or by failing to properly lock and secure the weapon resulting in access by children or others 

The most important element of a wrongful death case is establishing and proving which person or persons were at fault for the incident. Our personal injury lawyers have more than 25 years of experience winning wrongful death and other personal injury cases and will make sure to fully investigate your case so that you are able to collect the maximum amount of compensation.
