Wrongful Death

Our wrongful death lawyers can help you recover damages from the loss of a loved one caused through the negligence of another person or entity.

Wrongful death refers to the death of a loved one caused through the negligence of another person or entity. The loss of a loved one is a traumatic and emotionally devastating event; a preventable occurrence that comes with enormous family implications. If the loss of a loved one is caused through neglect, you may be entitled to an assortment of economic and noneconomic “damages”, to compensate you for this loss. Our wrongful death lawyers can help you recover compensation.

For what may you be entitled to compensation, though? You may recover compensation for loss of financial support, loss of gifts, funeral and burial expenses, the value of household services you otherwise would have been provided with. Aside from these material losses, you may also be entitled to emotional damages, too – such as the loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, moral support, as well as the loss of enjoyment of personal relations and the decedent’s training or guidance.

At Nehora Law Firm, our wrongful death attorneys have helped clients throughout Orange County recover compensation – negotiating a settlement and recovering lost damages.

Wrongful death can come about from a wide variety of circumstances. For instance, a person may have died as a direct result of medical malpractice. Workplace exposure to dangerous chemicals may also precipitate an otherwise avoidable death. Wrongful death isn’t limited to persons, but also to entities. If an entity, through negligence, was responsible for a death of a loved one, you may be entitled to damages. It’s worth clarifying, though, that wrongful death claims are considered civil claims and not criminal claims.

Our wrongful death lawyers can help you establish whether you have a case and, if so, we can create a viable and successful legal path toward settlement. Not everyone is permitted to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Directly affected persons – such as the deceased person’s spouse, domestic partner and surviving children – are entitled to file such a lawsuit. Other affected persons, such as parents and stepchildren, may also – depending on the circumstances – be permitted to file a lawsuit.

Again, the circumstances of the case dictate who can file a wrongful death lawsuit. However, the lawsuit itself must be filed within reasonable time. For example, in California, a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within 2 years from the date of the death of the decedent. If you believe you may be entitled to compensation, it’s best to approach a wrongful death attorney to discuss your case – a legal expert fluent in the legal language of these specific cases.

In summary, wrongful death is an emotionally and financially devastating event. As it is caused through the negligence of a person or entity, you may be entitled to a wide variety of economic and noneconomic damages. However, only directly affected persons may file a lawsuit (which, in California, must be filed within 2 years).
