Wrongful Death Claims in California
Compensation for Fatal Accidents
Not all accidents result in personal injury claims. Some cases are much more serious and result in the loss of a life. Nothing can truly compensate for the death of a loved one, but even so, the person responsible for causing the terrible accident should be held accountable for their negligence. In the state of California, the surviving family and dependents of a wrongful death victim has the ability to file a claim for compensation within two years of the date of the accident. Such claims can request compensation for economic and noneconomic damages, such as funeral and burial costs, property damage, loss of income, pain and suffering, grief counseling costs, and loss of consortium.
Some of these damages are easily calculated through bills and bank statements. Noneconomic damages are not so simple, however, which is why you will need to retain the counsel and representation of a skilled San Bernardino injury lawyer. Wrongful death claims are complex and, without proper representation, you may be denied fair compensation for your loss. Only an attorney with experience in wrongful death cases will be able to fight for a full recovery of all your present and ongoing damages.
