Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorneys
In Los Angeles, a wrongful death is defined as a killing that results from another person's negligence, misconduct or recklessness. Wrongful deaths may also be caused by defective and dangerous products, not just other people.
Regardless of how the death was caused, families who have lost their closest loved ones due to negligence always experience various forms of suffering. Emotionally, they must contend with the fact that their loved ones have passed and deal with their loss of companionship. Financially, they must figure out how they will pay for sudden expenses, like their loved ones' medical bills and burial fees. With so much on their minds, families dealing with wrongful deaths may not be aware of the fact that they have the right to take legal action against negligent parties by filing wrongful death claims.
With wrongful death cases, family members such as spouses, parents or children have the legal right to file lawsuits against the individuals who are responsible for the death of their loved ones. However, before they can move forward with wrongful death claims, they must be able to prove that other people's negligence or intentional acts caused the deaths of their family members. This element plays a crucial role in the success of any wrongful death claim and can be very difficult for families to prove in a court of law.
