Compassionate Representation For Family Members In Wrongful Death Cases

When another individual wrongfully causes the death of another person through acts of negligence, carelessness or recklessness, it is considered a wrongful death. With a death of a loved one due to the negligence of another person, the situation becomes more complex.

If you have lost a loved one because of an accident, please contact our office at 800-769-3977 or by email and allow us to help you and your family. Don't wait as time is of the essence to preserve your rights. Free telephone consultation.

Working To Hold All Negligent Parties Accountable

Although no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a loved one, surviving family members or dependents are entitled to monetary compensation for their losses. We understand that the loss of a loved one causes extreme stress and is an emotionally draining period, we will handle your case with sensitivity and attention that it deserves.

Every wrongful death case is unique to the individual, and we will carefully investigate the cause of the accident in order to find and establish liability of the responsible party. We may engage accident reconstruction specialists, engineers, medical experts, economists and other specialists to help build a strong case for you. These specialists can help assist in establishing the mechanics of the accident, the extent of the injuries, any need for future medical expenses, and establish financial losses. We will work with you every step of the way to understand your unique losses and to seek a just and fair compensation for you.

Here are examples of some wrongful death cases that we have handled in the past:

Wrongful Death — MUNI: A senior citizen was killed by a San Francisco MUNI streetcar when he was crossing the street. The MUNI operator claimed that the senior citizen ran out in front of the streetcar outside of the marked sidewalk. The police concluded that the accident was the senior citizen's fault and MUNI denied liability. We obtained a settlement of just under $1 million for his surviving spouse and children.

Wrongful Death — Jaywalking: A woman exited a bus and crossed a busy street in San Francisco when she was struck and killed by a motorist. The police cited her as being at fault for jaywalking not yielding the right of way to vehicles. With diligent investigation an additional settlement source was found with the registered owner's separate policy. We were able to obtain a combined settlement from both the driver's insurance policy and the registered owner's.
