Palm Springs Wrongful Death Attorney
Losing a close loved one such as a spouse, child or parent is never easy, especially when you know that if another person had not been negligent, your loved one would still be alive. While little can be done to alleviate the grief people must go through after a wrongful death has occurred, many things can be done to ensure that families remain financially stable.
The truth is, aside from dealing with the emotional after-effects of wrongful deaths, families must also deal with financial hardships. From paying for unexpected funerals to covering deceased loved ones' medical bills, wrongful deaths can be quite costly for family members. In the state of California, if families can prove that their loved ones' deaths were caused by other peoples' negligence, family members may file wrongful death claims, which may allow them to recover compensation from negligent parties.
Wrongful Death Claims & Personal Injury Law
Under personal injury law, families who have lost loved ones due to the reckless actions or negligence of other people may take legal action by filing wrongful death claims. If successful, family members may receive compensation for their lost loved ones' medical bills, burial expenses and lost earned income. Family members may also seek punitive damages for their loss of companionship and pain and suffering.
