Assisting Survivors Of Wrongful Death

Under California case law and statutes pertaining to wrongful death, the heirs and dependents of a person killed due to the negligent or culpable conduct of another, may seek legal recourse against the parties responsible for their family member’s death. Generally, this means that spouses, children and parents are the ones who may file a wrongful death claim.  A wrongful death may be the result of the negligent, malicious, reckless, or intentional conduct of a person or business stemming from a variety of different matters:  car accidentsauto accidentstruck accidentsmotorcycle accidentsbicycle accidentstransit accidentspedestrian accidentspremises liability accidentsslip and fall accidentsconstruction accidentsdog bitesdefective products or dangerous drugs.  A wrongful death claim can also stem from overt criminal behavior, such as murder, homicide or manslaughter.

Wrongful Death Cases In California

The immediate family members of a person killed in a wrongful death case may be entitled to recover damages for their financial losses, as well as the loss of love, companionship, moral support and household services of the deceased person.  Financial losses may include medical expenses, funeral expenses and the loss of earnings of the deceased family member.  While the most common cause of wrongful death cases are those based on negligence, a wrongful death claim can result from any type of actionable event whether it is based on negligence, an intentional act or the manufacture of a dangerous or defective product.  Though no amount of financial compensation can make up for the loss, the damages that may be recovered can certainly help to ensure financial stability for the survivors.

    Working with Barry Kaye was probably one of the best decisions we made as a family. He always made sure to make himself available to address any of our concerns. It always impressed me to see how punctual he always was and how he always made sure to answer his phone at any time. He was really able to guide us through this rough patch and his level of expertise really showed.
