San Bernardino Wrongful Death Attorney

Under the law, a wrongful death is any death caused by the wrongful acts of another person. This does not always mean a crime, although San Bernardino wrongful death lawsuits can be and sometimes are filed after a murder. A wrongful death can also be a death brought about by another person’s negligence, which is failure to act with reasonable care. For example, a death caused by a driver who simply wasn’t looking where she was going could be considered a wrongful death.

Our law firm handles a variety of the most common accidents that cause wrongful deaths, including:

California law gives immediate family members the right to sue over a wrongful death. In order, eligible family members include spouses and domestic partners; children; parents; and siblings. These people may recover the costs of the death to them, including funeral costs, the loss of future financial support and the loss of the deceased person’s love, care, comfort and support. The deceased person’s estate, through the personal representative in charge of the estate, may also sue for medical expenses, lost income incurred before death and any punitive damages.

At our firm, we know no amount of money can replace a lost loved one. But after an accident, many families find that they run into severe and unexpected financial difficulties, especially if the lost family member was a breadwinner. An Inland Empire wrongful death lawsuit can help families recover those costs and make ends meet while they rebuild their lives. It can also help them hold the wrongdoers responsible for the death legally liable for their actions, and raise public awareness of the dangers behind the accident.
