If you’ve lost a loved one as the result of another’s intentional act or negligent behavior, you may be able to seek compensation. Because the death of a close relative is so obviously tragic for the family of the deceased, the purpose of a Wrongful Death action is meant to help the family move forward financially in the face of such a tragic loss. The attorneys at Haffner & Morgan have years of experience in helping the victims of wrongful death cases get compensated. We provide free initial consultations and all of our cases are taken on a contingency (no recovery, no fee) basis.
The most common causes of Wrongful Death are:
When a person’s life is taken from them by the carelessness or intentional act of another person, the decedent’s heirs may have a legal remedy, which is called a Wrongful Death action. Statutes in California define who can bring a Wrongful Death action and what damages can be awarded.
An attorney with experience in wrongful deaths can help ensure you recover what is rightfully due, but also help with the process of loss after a tragedy. A survivor may be owed for the deceased’s pain and suffering, medical treatment costs, funeral and burial costs, loss of expected income, loss of inheritance, value of the deceased’s service, loss of love and companionship, or loss of consortium.
The attorneys at Haffner & Morgan can help guide family members through the legal system in the time of grief and loss following the death of a close relative. Consultations are available at no cost to you, and no fees are taken unless you obtain a settlement or positive jury verdict. Not every situation requires legal representation, but we are always here to answer your questions.
