Los Angeles Wrongful Death Attorneys

Any type of personal injury accident can prove devastating to the victim and his family. Whether the personal injury victim was involved in traffic accidents, premises liability accidents or other accidents, there is always a risk that the injuries suffered by the victim could be severe. It doesn't follow that personal injury victims who do not have lacerations or apparent injuries are safe from fatal injuries. Aside from scratches and bruises or even spine injuries and fractures, a personal injury victim may suffer head injury or brain injury, which could later on lead to wrongful death. Wrongful death results when a personal injury victim either dies immediately or suffers grave injuries that ultimately cause his demise. If your loved one suffered wrongful death as a result of any type of personal injury accident like traffic accidents involving car accident, motorcycle accident, bike and bicycle accident, pedestrian accident, truck accident, bus accident or train accident, you should know that your family has a right to pursue wrongful death claim or file wrongful death law suit against the party at fault. However, considering the seriousness of the claim, you should seek immediate advice from expert Los Angeles wrongful death attorneys who have the experience and resources in going against negligent parties and their insurance carriers in order to get the maximum compensation you and your family deserve for being denied the love and support of your loved one that was untimely taken away from you due to mere recklessness.

Why Should I Hire Experienced Wrongful Death Trial Lawyers?

Wrongful death is a very distressing consequence of being involved in a serious negligence accident. If you have lost a loved one, no matter how it happened, you already know the shattering effect and pain and suffering brought about by your loved one's untimely death. Add to this the fact that in personal injury cases, whether it be traffic accidents or premises liability accidents brought about by slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, construction accidents, dog bite accidents and explosions and fire accidents, the costs of your loved one's treatments prior to his demise could equally be devastating. Anybody who has been hospitalized, especially for serious injuries, would know that aside from undergoing x-rays, CT scan and MRI, the victim will need chiropractic treatments, orthopaedic evaluations, pain management consult and even surgeries for his serious injuries. These, coupled with the added funeral and burial costs due to wrongful death could prove to be insurmountable and life shattering. This is why, if your loved one suffered wrongful death, you need to seek help from OC Injury Defenders's experienced wrongful death trial lawyers, who can surely make the party at fault pay the high price for causing the wrongful death of your loved one, to include maximum claims for your loved one's property damage, actual medical costs, loss of earnings, out-of-pocket expenses, lost of love and support, loss of consortium, funeral and burial expenses and pain and suffering and other non-monetary losses.

California Wrongful Death Laws

If you have a family member that died in an accident, you should be aware that Los Angeles law provides that wrongful death compensation can be claimed by your family. However, California wrongful death laws provide that not all relatives can qualify as victims in wrongful death claims. Specifically, the law provides that the following are the only persons who can file wrongful death claim for the untimely death of a loved one: a) The wrongful death victim's surviving spouse, partner, children, and offspring of deceased children, or the immediate heirs of the victim if he dies without a will; (b) Any other persons dependent on the victim like the putative spouse, stepchildren or the victim's parents; and (c) A minor, if, at the time of the victim's death, the minor resided at least 180 days in the victims household prior to wrongful death and was dependent on the victim for at least one-half of the minor's support. Knowing that you have a claim against the negligent party is only the first hurdle, there are also complex laws and procedures in claiming wrongful death compensation and for this, you need to seek help from top Los Angeles wrongful death lawyers who are skilled in proving fault on the part of the negligent party and obtaining and presenting all documentary and testimonial evidence vital to getting the highest wrongful death compensation claim you and your family deserve.
