Wrongful Death Claims

 
It is clear now more than ever that one person’s negligence can have devastating effects on other individuals. This is quite common in accidents that result in death. While assigning blame may feel unsuitable in a time like this, it is important to make sure your family is covered in the face of tragedy. Therefore, it is crucial that everyone know what to do in the immediate aftermath of an accident similar to that on Tulare Avenue.

  • A Wrongful death claim is a claim brought against a defendant who has caused someone’s death, either through negligence (i.e. reckless driving) or as a result of some intentional action.
  • A Wrongful death claim gives the estate and/or those close to a deceased person the opportunity to file a lawsuit against the party who is legally liable for the death.
  • A wrongful death claim is a civil action brought forth by relatives of a deceased victim whose death is caused by the negligence of another party.
