No amount of money could ever replace your loved one. However, if someone you love died due to someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior, you have the legal right to hold the wrongdoer responsible for their misconduct.
You are likely facing astronomical financial burdens that relate to your loved one’s death, such as funeral costs, remaining medical bills, lost wages, loss of future wages, your loved one’s pain and suffering, and the loss of companionship and guidance to your family. At Blake & Ayaz, we can help you bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of your loved one and help your family receive the compensation they deserve.
Wrongful death cases are simply the families of the victim acting on their loved one’s behalf. If the victim were still alive, they would be able to file a personal injury claim against the negligent party who caused their injury and losses. Because they passed away, they are no longer able to bring this claim.
Some of the common types of wrongful death claims that appear before a court could include injuries, losses, and deaths related to car and truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, birth injuries, nursing home neglect or abuse, or product liability cases. This list is not exhaustive, and if you feel your loved one died due to someone else’s negligence, please call our compassionate attorneys to help ensure your legal rights are protected.
You may be wondering who may bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of your loved one. Certain family members in the State of California can bring wrongful death claims including spouses, domestic partners, and children. In certain cases, other persons may be allowed to bring wrongful death claims.
You only have a short period of time to file a lawsuit on behalf of your loved one. Wrongful death claims have a statute of limitations of two years following the death of your loved one. This is a very short period of time to file a case with the civil court, but if you fail to file during that timeframe, you will lose your legal rights and ability to receive compensation in your case.
We are so sorry for the loss of your loved one. No amount of compensation could ever bring them back, but we can help you obtain a monetary recovery from the negligent party in order to help you pay for the funeral expenses, medical bills, lost wages and more that you are facing.
