Have you lost a loved one in an accident? Let us fight for you.
Losing a loved one is always a painful experience. However, in the event of a wrongful death, your grief will be compounded by the fact that someone else’s negligence was responsible for taking your loved one from you.
By filing a wrongful death claim, you can not only get a sense of justice by holding the at-fault party liable for their actions, but also secure compensation that may be instrumental in helping your family move forward after your loss.
At The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates, we are here to answer all your questions about wrongful death claims and provide aggressive and effective representation right when you need it.
We Handle All Kinds of Wrongful Death Cases
Wrongful death claims may be filed by close surviving family members such as spouses, children, and grandchildren, as well as by other relatives who would be in line to inherit the deceased person’s property under California law. Just about any death resulting from negligence can justify a claim. Common scenarios include:
- Traffic accidents
- Premises accidents
- Drowning accidents
- Defective products
- Toxic exposure
- Medical malpractice
- Police brutality
At The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates, we understand the law as it pertains to these different types of causes of wrongful death. We know where to look for vital evidence as well as when to bring in various types of expert witnesses. You can trust us to build the strongest possible argument as to who is liable for your loved one’s death, so that you and your family may secure justice and compensation.
We Will Fight to Maximize Your Compensation
Quantifying damages in a wrongful death case can be a delicate matter. Many of the damages are non-economic, requiring us to make difficult judgment calls regarding the worth of your loved one’s affection, companionship and support. While in reality these things are priceless, the law requires us to put a value on them drawing on various factors like the plaintiff’s relationship to the deceased person, the deceased person’s age, and the size of settlements and awards in similar wrongful death cases.
You can rely on The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates to work hard to ensure you receive full and fair compensation for all applicable wrongful death damages, which may include:
- Medical bills related to the incident that caused the death
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of earnings or financial support your loved one would have provided
- Loss of household services your loved one would have performed
- Loss of consortium (for spouses)
- Loss of care, comfort, support, guidance, etc.
