Why is An Attorney Necessary for These Cases?
Wrongful death cases are complex and usually involve many parties, including the defendant’s insurance company and legal team. If the wrongful death involved the actions of a business or government entity, the defendant may have significant resources. Because of this, you need an attorney to level the playing field.
Your Riverside wrongful death attorney will perform a thorough investigation of the incident by speaking to eyewitnesses, reviewing accident reports, analyzing medical records, and more. Your attorney may also secure expert medical and economic witnesses to properly calculate the losses you have experienced.
How Do Wrongful Death Cases Arise?
Wrongful death cases arise when someone loses their life due to the careless or negligent actions of another person, company, or entity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that nearly 170,000 people died from unintentional injury deaths in the latest reporting year. Typically, the surviving family members of the deceased file a wrongful death lawsuit to gain closure and to hold those responsible for the death accountable for their actions.
There are various ways in which wrongful deaths arise. Some of the most common causes include the following:
These cases are a tragedy for so many people. The victim’s family will be irrevocably changed due to the death, losing out on that person’s companionship, future income and benefits, and more. Holding the negligent parties accountable is absolutely vital. Under California law, the surviving family members generally have two years from the date of a person’s death to file wrongful death claims.
