No one wants to think about a lawsuit while he or she is grieving the loss of a family member. However, it is important to quickly seek out legal representation. While most wrongful death claims need to be filed within two years, those involving medical malpractice generally must be filed within one year. And cases involving a governmental entity (the state, a city, a transit or port authority, for instance) must be filed within 180 days.
Regardless of when a case needs to be filed, there is a more important reason to act quickly: evidence disappears and memories fade. Our attorneys immediately begin working to preserve evidence and interview witnesses, to help our clients obtain compensation for the economic and noneconomic losses associated with an accidental death. Under California law, heirs can receive a broad range of compensation:
- Medical expenses incurred prior to death
- Funeral costs
- Anticipated lifetime earnings of the deceased
- Loss of benefits
- Loss of inheritance
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of care and companionship
Our attorneys have handled wrongful death and fatality cases stemming from a wide range of causes, including industrial accidents, defective products, construction accidents, fatal car accidents, trucking accidents and motorcycle accidents. Our firm has handled fatal accident cases that have occurred on Highway 12, Highway 4, I-99 and I-8, in addition to roadways across Stockton, Lodi and toward Tahoe. We have been exclusively representing personal injury victims for a decade and are committed to helping our clients optimize the compensation they receive for their losses.
