Understanding Wrongful Death
“Wrongful Death,” in California, essentially means that someone has passed away due to the wrongful actions of another person. This wrongful act can encompass behaviors ranging from negligence and recklessness to even intentional misconduct.
Should intentional misconduct be suspected, the wrongdoer may face criminal charges. If you find yourself unsure whether your circumstances warrant a wrongful death lawsuit, it’s worth it to reach out to an experienced attorney to know the truth.
Many may not have initially believed that they had a case only to discover that they had a strong one.
Establishing Wrongful Death Claims
Proving a wrongful death case involves substantiating four crucial elements. Firstly, you must demonstrate that the death of your loved one resulted from the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of the party you are suing.
Secondly, you need to establish that the defendant owed a duty to the victim (your loved one) and that this duty was breached. For instance, a doctor is entrusted with the duty to heal, while a driver is obligated to adhere to road laws. Breaching these duties can lead to fatal consequences.
Additionally, you must prove a direct causation between the defendant’s actions and the death of your loved one. Finally, you must demonstrate that you have suffered damages on account of the loss of a loved one.
Damages in a Wrongful Death Case
Again, nothing makes up for the loss of a loved one. The compensation for these cases includes bills you may be facing as a result of your loved one’s passing. Any medical bills they accrued, funereal costs, and so forth can be claimed.
Additionally, you may be eligible for compensation for your pain, your suffering, loss of consortium, and more. When you meet with Belal, he can go over your case, letting you know what it’s worth and how we can help.
