San Bernardino Wrongful Death Lawyer
Wrongful Death Claims in California
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.
California Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations
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.
Compensation for Fatal Accidents
Wrongful death claims can request compensation for economic and non-economic
damages, such as:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Property damage
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Grief counseling costs
- Loss of consortium
Some of these damages are easily calculated through bills and bank statements.
Non-economic damages are not so simple, however, which is why you will
need to retain the counsel and representation of a skilled San Bernardino
wrongful death 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.
