San Bernardino Wrongful Death Lawyers

San Bernadino Wrongful Death Attorney- Andrew L. Ellis Andy Ellis is one of the most successful Wrongful Death lawyers in Los Angeles California. Meet Mr. Ellis and find out how he helps his clients who have a wrongful death case.

Losing a loved one under any circumstance takes an emotional toll. Losing a loved one due to the careless or reckless actions of another person is often far more devastating. If you have lost a loved one under these circumstances, you could potentially have a wrongful death claim.  

A wrongful death claim is different than a criminal case. There is no potential for jail time or fines, and a successful claim will not result in a mark on the responsible person’s criminal record. When you work with a San Bernardino wrongful death lawyer, the remedy available to you is monetary compensation.  

At Ellis Injury Law, we understand that no amount of money can undo what has been done to your family. That said, the financial compensation available in your case could help with the financial strain that can follow an unexpected loss. To discuss your case in detail, contact the personal injury lawyers of Ellis Injury Law right away.  

Understanding wrongful death claims 

There is no blueprint for a wrongful death case. Every claim is different, depending on the facts that led to the passing of your loved one. Generally speaking, death is wrongful if it occurs as a result of another person’s careless, reckless, or intentional acts. There can be multiple factors in these cases, as well as multiple potential defendants. Some common causes of wrongful death claims include: 

  • Violent crime 
  • Car accidents 
  • Premises liability claims 
  • Defective products 
  • Medical mistakes 
  • Work accidents 

Understanding what caused the loss of your family member’s life could help your wrongful death lawyer build the strongest case possible on your behalf.   

Who can file a wrongful death lawsuit? 

While an untimely death could impact countless lives, only a small number of family members have the right to bring a wrongful death action. According to California law, the primary right to file a wrongful death lawsuit rests with a deceased person’s: 

  • Spouse 
  • Domestic partner 
  • Children  

These family members have equal rights to bring a lawsuit. However, if none of these people are willing or able to file suit, the right to bring a claim falls to other relatives. These include: 

  • The deceased person’s “putative spouse” 
  • Stepchildren of the deceased 
  • Parents of the deceased  

The rules identifying the person who has the right to bring a wrongful death claim are complex. To ensure your claim is viable, contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your eligibility.
