Wrongful Death Attorney

Wrongful Death Attorney San Diego

Losing a loved one cannot compare to any other pain. It is hard enough losing someone to natural causes. Losing someone due to wrongful death and the negligence of someone else is devastating. Often times, “accidents” are rarely an accident. In San Diego, cases referred to as “wrongful death” matters are usually brought on behalf of the deceased (the person who has died) by his or her surviving spouse, child, or parent.

Wrongful death matters in California are found in a variety of circumstances, including but not limited to:

  • Medical mistakes
  • Car or airplane accidents
  • Criminal attacks such as a murder
  • Work-related exposure to dangerous conditions or substances
  • Death during a supervised activity
  • A pedestrian being killed by a drunk driver
  • Airplane Crash
  • Nursing home death
  • Defective product
  • Workplace accident/fall
  • Recreational vehicle accident

It is not uncommon for insurance companies to offer immediate payments to the family of the deceased in a wrongful death. As is true whenever insurance companies step in, they are looking to make the smallest payment available in order for the recipient to waive their right to pursue more in damages. It is important to remember that the insurance industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Those profits come from using tactics like those described above.  The quicker the insurance company offers payment, the more likely it is that they are aware of the potential liability they have in a wrongful death case.

Personal Injury – Wrongful Death– Understanding the law in San Diego

If a wrongful death case is taken to court, judges and juries will decide your amount of damages. They are a variety of factors that determine how much in damages you have suffered. You may have lost your sole financial support, lost services, or endured pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost prospect of inheritance, income, and medical or funeral costs. Damages meant to punish the person or entity that caused the death called “punitive damages” may also apply where cruelty or irreprehensible conduct (malice) was involved.

It is important that you consult with a Personal Injury and Wrongful Death lawyer before the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death lawsuit expires.
