We Represent Family Members of Wrongful Death Victims
Freedman Law understands how a sudden death may be financially and emotionally devastating. A wrongful death lawsuit will not bring your loved one back but will help you send liable parties a message. However, California civil laws generally limit claims to close family members.
Our Visalia wrongful death attorney has helped family members achieve civil justice, including:
Others appointed under the law
If no direct family members survive, the case may be filed by anybody legally entitled to the decedent’s inheritance, such as financial dependents or successors. We understand that every family dynamic is unique. Reach out to Freedman Law if you need help appointing a personal representative or identifying the person best suited for fighting the legal fight in your loved one’s memory.
Proving a Wrongful Death Claim in California
The first step in proving a wrongful death claim is by establishing the element of negligence that existed. This element is critical as it gives the decedent’s estate a right to a lawsuit. However, meeting the definition of negligence is challenging to prove without sufficient evidence and legal knowledge.
Freedman Law has helped family members prove negligence after an accident by showing:
The other party owed your loved one a duty of care
They breached their duty
Their breach resulted in your loved one’s death
The accident caused financial and physical injuries
A Visalia wrongful death attorney can help if you have a viable wrongful death lawsuit. If appropriate, a detailed review of your loved one’s death and the surrounding circumstances will reveal negligence, liability, and settlement valuation. Freedman Law will also help you file your claim well before the statute of limitations, which is up to two years after your loved one’s death.
