Reseda Wrongful Death Lawyers
In the devastation that comes in the wake of a loved one’s death, families may find it difficult to move forward both emotionally and financially. When negligence is the cause of a family’s loss, the law often allows them to file a claim to receive compensation for damages. While no amount of money can ever bring back your loved one, compensation for funeral costs and other expenses can help you put your life back together during this terribly difficult time.
Wrongful death can happen anytime, anywhere, and under a wide variety of circumstances; whether it was a criminal act, a slip and fall accident, or even medical malpractice, you and your family may have a way to bring closure to your loss, and receive financial reparations at a time when it is needed the most.
In Reseda, the attorneys at Ellis Injury Law are ready to put their professional knowledge to work for you. We not only have the resolve to fight for everything the law says you deserve but the compassion that only decades of working with people dealing with the tragic loss of a loved one can bring. To find out if you have the option of filing a claim, schedule your free consultation with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers as soon as possible.
Who can file a claim?
For residents of California, the group of people who may file a wrongful death claim is limited, with only certain members of the family able to file suit on behalf of their loved one. Those who can bring file claims are:
- Surviving Spouse or Partner
- Surviving Parents or Children
- Surviving Grandchildren (when there are no children to file a claim)
In some cases, state law provides for others to file a wrongful death claim. With the rules being so complex, speaking with a wrongful death lawyer is the best way for you to understand what your rights are, and how best to exercise those rights while you still have the option to do so.
What compensation can a wrongful death case bring you?
For those looking for closure, peace of mind, and justice for a deceased loved one, a wrongful death case can bring compensation for your mental anguish, while also helping to ease the burden caused by funeral costs and loss of income, as well as the future earnings the lost loved one would have provided for the family if s/he has survived.
