There may be nothing more difficult and emotionally challenging than losing a loved one as the result of someone else’s wrongful conduct. The pain of losing a loved one can be compounded by feelings of anger, frustration, and uncertainty. If someone else caused your loved one’s death, they deserve to be held accountable, and you and your family should be compensated for your losses.

Proving a Wrongful Death Claim
To prove a wrongful death claim, you must show that the defendant’s negligent or reckless conduct caused your loved one’s death and that you suffered losses as a result. As soon as we take on your claim, we will conduct a thorough investigation to discover and gather evidence to demonstrate the defendant’s responsibility for your loved one’s fatal injuries. We will also help to value your claim by calculating the losses that you and other surviving family members have experienced as a result of losing your loved one.
Compensation for Wrongful Death Claims
Calculating the value of your wrongful death claim is a complex process, but it is easier when you have an experienced attorney handling your case. Wrongful death compensation is intended to provide financial recovery to surviving family members for their economic and noneconomic damages as a result of losing their loved one. Economic damages are losses that have a fixed monetary value, such as loss of the decedent’s financial support, funeral expenses, and the value of your loved one’s household services.
Noneconomic damages are losses that you have sustained that do not have a monetary value. These losses are sometimes referred to as emotional damages. In California, surviving family members are not entitled to compensation for some emotional losses, such as grief and sorrow. However, you may be entitled to financial recovery for other emotional losses, such as loss of the decedent’s love and companionship and loss of consortium.
