Seeking Justice For Your Loved One’s Wrongful Death: 3 Vital Steps

Wrongful Death Law Blog

A loved one’s death is always challenging to take; nevertheless, a death caused by someone else’s negligence may cause much more than sadness, anguish, and resentment. You may want to pursue justice for the victim’s death and hold the person responsible for their death accountable.

The most effective strategy to do so is to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party and seek legal reparations with the assistance of our friendly and charismatic attorneys.

Understanding How to Make a Wrongful Death Claim

  • Consulting a Personal Injury Lawyer
  • Filing a Civil Lawsuit
  • The Legal Process
  • Contact Us for a Personal Injury Attorney

The following are the actions you should take in the event of a wrongful death claim.

Consulting a Wrongful Death Attorney

Before doing anything else, consult an experienced wrongful death lawyer in Los Angeles. You go over the events leading up to the wrongful death action, how much you should get compensated for the financial and emotional losses you’ve suffered, and what measures you can take to make a compelling wrongful death case in court.

While money can never bring a loved one back, it is safe and just an alternative to seeking financial compensation. Suppose the family member contributed to your household expenses.

In that case, your family members might face financial hardship due to lost income – not to mention your departed loved one’s funeral costs and burial expenses.

Thus, seeking financial compensation serves as a form of justice and as a financial support safety net for the future of surviving family members.

Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit Before the Statute of Limitations

In California, wrongful death claims are subject to a statute of limitations, which specifies the period of time a victim has to submit a wrongful death claim after the crime occurred.

A surviving spouse, children, or other family member has two years from the date of their loved one’s death to bring a claim, just as in other personal injury cases.

If you are late to the deadline, you and anybody else who may bring a wrongful death claim for your lost loved one lose their right to file wrongful death claims.

Preparing Your Wrongful Death Case

Wrongful death cases need to be prepared together with your wrongful death lawyers. It is up to the jury and judge to resolve wrongful death cases after they got presented in court. An excellent personal representative can present a compelling case with sufficient evidence to support your wrongful death suit.

They must also have sufficient experience to make a convincing case for the amount of compensation you consider you have an entitlement to.

When the court and jury determine that your loved one’s death resulted from negligence, they ensure that justice gets delivered when you seek compensation. While this does not bring the person back, it helps you cope with your sorrow and protect your finances after they die away.

Once judges in California agree that a person deserves compensation when wrongful death occurs, they must divide the compensation amount into two categories: economic and non-economic damages.

Your financial or economic losses include the financial assistance, gifts, perks, and domestic services that the deceased person would have supplied, as well as medical bills, funeral expenses, and burial costs. The loss of their affection, friendship, protection, enjoyment of intimacy, and direction are non-economic losses.

Experiencing the aftermath of a loved one’s tragic death may become a trying experience for anybody. However, there is an opportunity to get justice and come to terms with the loss and the responsible party or parties. Surviving spouses need the support of a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer to ensure they achieve the justice and compensation they deserve in wrongful death lawsuits.
