Freedman Law Builds Cases for Grieving Family Members
In most cases, only the decedent’s surviving spouse, domestic partner, children, or estate beneficiaries are eligible to file wrongful death claims. However, the other requirement is to prove that negligence caused your family member’s death.
Our Hanford wrongful death attorney will review your case to determine if the following facts can be proven.:
The negligent party was responsible for your loved one’s safety
They breached this duty by creating careless or reckless circumstances
This breach caused your loved one’s accident and death
Their death resulted in physical and financial harm
Freedman Law knows how to apply each of the above-referenced elements to your case and uses our resources to uncover the facts. We will keep you informed of new developments throughout the process while treating your loved ones with compassion, empathy, and respect.
California Protects Your Family’s Rights After Losing a Loved One
Wrongful death cases are types of personal injury cases. The primary objective is to seek compensation for the victim’s estate. Any proceeds recovered will then be distributed to named heirs in their will.
The Hanford wrongful death attorney at Freedman Law will help your family recover compensation for:
Funeral and burial expenses
Loss of companionship
Pain and suffering
Other recoverable losses
Alternatively, the surviving family members of the deceased may be able to receive additional compensation through a survival action.
