Holding Responsible Parties Accountable For The Loss Of Your Loved One
There is no way to describe the pain of losing a loved one. When your loved one dies because of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you may file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf. While no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of your family member, it can help you move forward and secure your financial future.
At AK Injury Law Firm, we help family members of deceased individuals in San Diego through the wrongful death claims process. We understand how overwhelming this time can be. You and your family should focus on grieving, recovering and healing, not on the legal process. We will help shoulder the legal burden so you can look toward the future.
Helping You Understand The Wrongful Death Claims Process
A wrongful death claim can arise out of any accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior. This can include deaths caused by car accidents, truck crashes, slip and falls, and animal attacks.
Surviving family members can file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial costs
- Lost income
- Loss of financial support
- Loss of companionship and affection
In California, the deceased individual’s surviving spouse, children and parents can file a wrongful death lawsuit. If the deceased has no surviving family members, the executor of their estate can file the claim on their behalf.
You only have two years from the date of the death to file a claim, so it is vital that you contact an experienced wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to get started on your case. If the accident involves a public entity, such as the city of San Diego or the state of California, you only have six months to file a lawsuit.
