Hawaiian Gardens Wrongful Death Lawyers
One of the hardest parts of life is death. Loss, however, is made worse when the deceased was taken because of someone else’s negligence. Losing your loved one’s company, love and laughter is tremendously hard, but it is also difficult to lose his or her tangible contributions to your household. These losses, like income and support, compound an already difficult time.
There is a way to fight back and ease those tangible losses. Pursuing a wrongful death claim with the help of a Hawaiian Gardens wrongful death attorney can go a long way toward easing some of the pain of your loss.

Our Hawaiian Gardens wrongful death lawyers are committed to offering compassionate yet effective representation to not only get you the compensation you deserve but also to ease your pain and confusion.
You deserve full compensation for your losses
There are a few different kinds of benefits that the surviving family members of the wrongfully deceased can seek in a wrongful death claim, including:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical expenses
- Loss of companionship or care
- Loss of income
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of household services
Your wrongful death lawyer will work with you to determine the varying contributions your loved one made to your household, you, and your dependents. This process is used to develop a case for monetary compensation for your loss. This case can be presented in settlement negotiations or in a trial in court.
Potential for survivorship action
Victims of negligence who are fatally injured may pass away instantly or after some time has passed in which case surviving family members may have grounds to pursue a survival action, or, in other words, the personal injury claim that the victim would have pursued had he or she survived the injuries. California law allows family members in these cases to recover “the damages that the decedent sustained or incurred before death, including any penalties or punitive or exemplary damages that the decedent would have been entitled to recover had the decedent lived.”
