Los Angeles Wrongful Death Attorney You Can Trust
Experienced and compassionate accidental death attorney
When an accidental death results from a personal injury, the claim for damages is called a wrongful death action. At National Choice Lawyers, we have the knowledge and compassion to represent families of accidental death victims successfully. Our bilingual staff devotes their time and energy to our clients and to the success of their claims.
What damages are available to families of accidental death victims?
The types of damages a surviving family can recover for wrongful death differ from non-fatal accidental injuries as set forth under California law. Only specific claimants, normally the legal heirs of the victim, can bring a wrongful death action. They must file a lawsuit no later than two years after the accident date in most cases. If a lawsuit is not timely filed, except for some exceptions, there is usually no possibility of recovering compensation.
The types of damages that they can recover in an accidental death case include:
- Economic support the victim would have provided the claimant
- Gifts and benefits that would have been given to the claimant had there been no death
- Household services the victim would have provided
- Loss of training and guidance expected to have been provided to the claimant by the accidental death victim
- Loss of love and companionship, comfort and care and other attributes of familial and spousal relationships that would have been expected from the victim
Our experienced personal injury lawyer has access to the necessary experts to prove the monetary value of the damages in order to maximize the claim.
