If you have lost a loved one because of another's negligence, a wrongful death lawyer with our Orange County firm can help you secure the compensation you deserve.
Sean: Wrongful death cases are cases that involve a claim, in which the persons who have survived are claiming that the person who died, died as a result of somebody' negligence. That negligence could have occurred in a trucking accident. It could have occurred in an auto accident. It could have occurred as a result of medical malpractice. Wrongful death cases can be very complicated, as can other cases. The compensation that you get, that you're allowed to sue for involves the loss of love, society and comfort of the person who has passed away. And if the person was a breadwinner, if the person was a wage earner and supporting the plaintiffs, then the plaintiffs can also sue for whatever loss of support has occurred. We've handled a number of wrongful death cases. At any given time, I've probably got a dozen wrongful death cases going, and they involve a lot of complicated issues having to do with calculating the losses, having to do with calculating, figuring out exactly how much compensation we can get for that particular loss. Heather: If you think that a loved one did die as a result of negligence or the withholding of medical services, I would encourage you to contact us. We're here to help and we're here to answer your questions, and do a thorough evaluation of the case, from the perspective of whether there was negligence, whether that negligence caused the injury, and also what forms of compensation would be available to you.
