Wrongful Death

Stockton Personal Injury Lawyer

Stockton Personal Injury LawyerLosing a loved one is one of the hardest things any person has to go through in life. There is so much emotional and physical pain associated with the unexpected death of a loved one. But beyond that, there is the financial burden that would be accompanied by it such as medical bills, loss of income, funeral expenses, loss of inheritance and benefits and so much more. And although no amount of money can truly compensate the emotional damage of losing a loved one, the law does allow you to recover compensation for funeral expenses and other damages incurred. The best way to go about it is to contact an experienced attorney.

A wrongful death can occur in a number of different ways and it can be very difficult to understand. People can die in situations like:

  • Motorcycle Accident
  • Truck and Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Exploding Airbags
  • Burn Injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Brain Injuries
  • Slips and Falls
  • Dog/Animal Attacks
  • others caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence

In any wrongful death, injustice has occurred and it’s important the sorrow people experience from losing a loved one is rightfully compensated. It is really important you call an attorney as soon as possible because in California, there is a statute of limitations that sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date of the incident.

A wrongful death suit has two different types of recovery: one brought by the victim and the other brought by the victim’s family. If the claim was brought by the victim, the court will compensate funds for any pain, suffering, medical, funeral or burial expenses. However, if the death happens instantaneously, there may not be any compensation for pain and suffering and instead, there could be compensation for income and the intangible value of lost life. These types of tragic cases often receive large awards so make sure to contact an experienced attorney who can help you receive the proper compensation.
