In Need of an Injury Lawyer for a California Wrongful Death Case?
Most days, we all get up and go about our daily lives. We go to work and school, take care of our families and run errands. No one expects a serious accident to happen to us. We might hear about it happening to other people, and even though there is a part of us that knows it could happen to us, we never really think that it will. It is hard to understand the pain that comes along with being in a serious, unexpected accident until it happens to you. One of the worst things that can happen is when a loved one is fatally killed in an accident because of the negligent or reckless actions of others. This is something that we all dread and fear; the death of someone we love.
If you are dealing with the loss of a loved one because of the negligence of another party, we know you are grieving and dealing with so much. While nothing can ease the ache of that loss, you deserve financial compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, and, in some cases, emotional distress from the loss. You might be entitled to file a wrongful death claim. There are many accidents that can fall under wrongful death suits including automobile accidents and medical malpractice suits.
You deserve to receive financial compensation.

The Four Key Elements of a Wrongful Death Claim
There are 4 key elements that are involved in these cases.
1: Negligence- You must be able to prove that the death was caused by the negligent actions of another party.
2: Breach of Duty- It must be shown that there was a duty owed. This varies but can mean things such as a duty to obey traffic laws. It must be shown that the negligent party failed to uphold their duty.
3: Caution: It must be proven that the negligent or reckless behavior led to the death of your loved one.
4: Damages: You must be able to show that financial and non-financial damages were incurred because of the accident. Damages can vary and can be shown by documenting medical costs, funeral expenses, loss of wages, etc.
