El Monte Wrongful Death Lawyers
When a person passes away as the result of an accident, death can feel sudden and unexpected, often leaving families and loved ones struggling with the emotional, mental, and financial impacts of their loss. Certainly, no amount of money could ever replace the presence of the person you care about, but you can receive monetary compensation to cover the financial hardships that result from losing a spouse, parent, child, or other important family figures.
If someone you love has died as the result of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to hold that party responsible and fight for compensation. Our El Monte wrongful death lawyers will help you in your time of need to ensure you and your family are cared for following the death of your loved one.
Types of wrongful deaths
The passing of a person is considered a wrongful death when the incident could have been avoided had the negligent party taken action to remove or warn about known hazards or hadn’t acted in a reckless or malicious way that caused the death.
There are many incidents that can be considered “wrongful death” but some common examples include:
- Medical malpractice
- Slip and falls
- Auto accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Defective equipment or products
- Exposure to chemicals or other toxins
Our El Monte personal injury lawyers will investigate your cases to help you determine whether or not the loss of your loved one was the result of someone else’s negligence and can be considered a wrongful death.
What you can claim in your lawsuit
After unexpectedly losing a loved one, it can be hard to see all of the ways that their death can impact your life. Losing a spouse, parent, or adult child that cares for their parents can create extreme financial gaps in income while also resulting in the need to hire additional help to take on the supportive roles that the deceased loved one had previously done.
Some of the damages your wrongful death lawyer may include in your legal claim are:
- Funerals, cremations, and other memorial service fees
- Loss of family income from a deceased spouse, domestic partner, parents, or other head of the household figure
- Assisted living or other care for elderly parents previously under the care of their adult child
- Cost of nannies, daycare, and other childcare needed in the absence of a parent
- Additional hired help to perform household tasks or chores previously done by the spouse
- Emotional and mental support of grieving family members
