Lomita Wrongful Death Lawyers
Recovering from the loss of a spouse, domestic partner, parent, child, and other loved ones can feel like an impossible task—especially when it feels as if that person left earlier than they should have due to someone else’s negligent actions. At Ellis Law, our Lomita wrongful death lawyers understand that no amount of money could ever replace the death of someone you care about so deeply. However, seeking monetary reparations from liable parties can help to ease the other financial impacts resulting from your loved one’s untimely death.
If someone in your family has recently passed and you believe that it may have been the results of someone else’s carelessness or harmful actions, you and your family could be eligible for compensation. Contact the personal injury lawyers from Ellis Law today for a free consultation.
How a wrongful death lawsuit works
There are many different categories of wrongful deaths and the loss can affect each family in very different ways. This makes each wrongful death case unique, requiring an experienced and determined wrongful death lawyer. This lawyer will take the proper amount of time and energy to fully investigate the cause of your loved one’s death, determine which parties are liable for the incident, the current impacts it has had on you and other surviving family members, and the potential impacts it may have in the future.
Examples of wrongful death lawsuits may include:
- Medical malpractice
- Auto accidents
- Workplace incidents
- Exposure to toxins or chemicals
- Injuries that result in death
- Firearms, intentional or accidental
There are many more incidents that could be eligible for a wrongful death case. A Lomita wrongful death attorney will listen to your case through a free consultation and help you determine if you may be eligible for compensation.
Criminal Prosecution vs Civil Lawsuit
It is important to understand that a civil case is different than a criminal prosecution. While a doctor may be held criminally responsible for their medical negligence or a robber sentenced to jail for killing their victim, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the families will be compensated for their damages. A wrongful death civil case is a separate legal action that must be filed within the statute of limitations that will help you and your family collect damages from the person or parties responsible for your loved one’s death.
Don’t let the fear of legal fees hold you back
These cases are often long and complicated, and can sometimes involve standing up to big businesses, difficult insurance companies, or wealthy individuals that have the resources to stall trials and create additional financial obstacles for the average family in an attempt to have them collect less than they should.
Our team at Ellis Law has more than 25 years of experience winning wrongful death and other personal injury cases for our clients, collecting more than $350 million in settlements. We also offer free consultations and never bill for our services until a settlement has been won. This is because we believe that a Lomita wrongful death attorney should do more than just provide legal services, they should care about the overall well being of their clients and their clients’ families.
