Sideswipe Car Accidents

Stockton Personal Injury Lawyer Helps Those Who Have Been Injured in a Sideswipe Car Accident

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is the term used when someone causes the death of another person.

The death may be caused by the actions of someone or by their failure to act (neglect). Wrongful death is a civil action rather than a criminal action. Since the person killed (decedent) cannot file suit or collect damages, it is the family or representatives of the estate that do so.

Damages can be assessed for lost wages and benefits, loss of companionship, and emotional pain and suffering caused by the trauma. (more…)
