At Gonzales Law Offices, we know that there is no amount of monetary compensation that could fully replace what you have lost. Wrongful death of a loved one involves more than just physical loss. Emotional losses are one of the most difficult aspects of a wrongful death case because you cannot change what happened or prevent the accident from having occurred. Legal action and compensation is a method that can be used to seek justice. Fighting for compensation in a wrongful death case can best be accomplished by the legal assistance of our personal injury lawyer.
What Is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death cases are a form of civil court lawsuit in which a surviving family member of the decedent can sue the responsible party for damages. These cases are handled in a civil court rather than a criminal court because the death was accidental and not intentional. Negligent parties who caused another individual’s death may be held liable for their actions. Many circumstances can result in a wrongful death case. Common causes of wrongful death claims include auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, and fires. Even though wrongful death cases are often the result of an accident, the liable party should still be held accountable for his or her negligent actions.
