Pasadena Wrongful Death Lawyers
Pasadena is known for a lot of great things: the Tournament of Roses Parade and the ensuing Rose Bowl, Caltech and other prestigious educational institutions, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and beautiful Art Deco architecture. Unfortunately, accidents can happen anywhere, even in this cultural and scientific hub. If an accident that was caused by another person’s irresponsibility leads to the death of a family member or spouse, you should contact Pasadena wrongful death lawyers with Ellis Law right away. The law in California is on your side, but you’ll need knowledgeable and determined personal injury lawyers on your side in order to reach the best possible legal outcome.
What is considered “wrongful death”?
When a standard personal injury case results in death, it becomes a wrongful death case. It’s important to note that a wrongful death case is a civil case, not a criminal case, which is prosecuted by the state. Since the decedent can no longer sue for damages, family members become the new plaintiffs on their behalf. Wrongful death lawyers can help you fight for all the compensation the victim would have received had they not succumbed to their injuries, as well as money to cover any projected losses to the family estate, loss of income that the family depended on, and a sum to make up for the emotional agony the family has endured following the loss of a loved one.
