Wrongful Death Attorney in Los Angeles
Death is usually final, but the pain of losing a loved one, especially due to someone else's negligence, will likely live with you for the rest of your life. In such difficult times, you may have more questions than answers. While we might not be able to help you overcome grief, we can play a different yet equally important role in your life.
If your loved one died because of someone else's actions or inactions, you and other members of the family might be entitled to compensation. We understand that financial compensation is probably the last thing you're thinking about when mourning a loved one. That's because no amount of monetary damages can bring back the person you so loved.
However, it can help pay off bills resulting from your loved one's death. We are talking about medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and lost wages in some cases. To learn more about how our Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer might be able to help, please fill out our free case evaluation form today.

What Qualifies As Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is a legal term that describes a situation where someone dies due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another party. This death may occur under different circumstances, including but not limited to automobile accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, slips and falls, or even product defects.
What Are the Signs That My Loved One Is a Victim of Wrongful Death?
Your loved one might be a victim of wrongful death if there is clear negligence or misconduct by another party leading to the fatal incident or if the explanation for their death does not really make sense. Consulting with a wrongful death specialist from our team can help clarify if there are grounds for a wrongful death claim.
Who Can Sue for Wrongful Death?
In Los Angeles, immediate family members, such as spouses, children, or parents, may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In some cases, the eligibility may extend beyond this bracket, emphasizing the importance of having your case reviewed by an expert.
Can I File a Claim for the Decedent's Pain and Suffering?
Yes, you can. In a wrongful death claim, the decedent's pain and suffering leading up to their death matters. The appropriate compensation will depend on the severity of their pain and suffering.
The Decedent Didn't Have a Job. Can I Still File a Wrongful Death Claim?
The deceased not having a job does not necessarily mean you cannot file a wrongful death claim. Damages in a wrongful death case can encompass various losses, not just financial contributions. Let's say, for example, the deceased helped with the family's childcare needs. That alone could count as additional grounds for filing a claim since the family will likely need to hire someone to help with childcare, something they shouldn't have had to do if their loved one had been alive.
