Freedman Law Handles Wrongful Death Cases Caused By Negligence
A wrongful death case is where the cause of action is related to the negligent acts of another party that caused another to lose their life. The primary goal of a wrongful death claim is to get reasonable compensation, often known as damages, for family members and the decedent’s losses.
Freedman Law represents wrongful death claims stemming from negligence, including:
Slip and fall accidents
Other types of accidents
Our Madera wrongful death attorney will stand by your family’s side throughout the legal process. By filing a wrongful death lawsuit or a survival action, our legal team can hold liable parties to account on your behalf.
Freedman Law Will Help You File a Wrongful Death Claim
Only specific parties are permitted by California law to pursue wrongful death claims seeking damages. Unfortunately, you do not qualify as a victim if you are merely acquainted with the deceased. In contrast, any qualified individual could be elected as the estate’s representative in a survival action under the California Code of Civil Procedure Section 377.60.
Our Madera slip and fall attorney helps family members file a California wrongful death claim, including:
Other parties can file a wrongful death claim. However, they must prove they were financially dependent on the deceased’s salary during life.
Compensation Is Available for Wrongful Death Claims
California civil laws allow an appointed personal representative to file a wrongful death case on behalf of the estate and heirs. The insurance company will consider the nature of the deceased’s relationship with the survivors to decide the amount of money owed. However, they do not always get their facts right.
The Madera wrongful death attorney at Freedman Law will help you evaluate compensation owed for losses, including:
Burial or cremation costs
Medical bills (until the time of death)
Lost wages (until the time of death)
Future lost earnings
Pain and suffering
A successful negotiation or lawsuit could result in substantial compensation for your losses. While money does not bring your family member back to life, it can hold liable parties accountable for their careless and reckless actions.
