Auto Accident
A wrongful death case can arise out of a fatal motor vehicle accident, slip and fall accident, construction accident, or any other type of accident causing the death of a family member.  If you have lost a family member due to the negligence of another party in any type of accident, our office offers a free initial consultation to explain your rights to compensation. California has specific statutes that govern who is eligible to collect money in a wrongful death claim. During your free consultation, I shall explain whether you are entitled to even file a claim.

My job as a lawyer is twofold:
  • To determine if there was negligence on the part of someone else causing your family member's death<
  • To determine whether insurance coverage is available to compensate you

  • In wrongful death cases, often there is inadequate insurance to compensate family members of the victim. My experience has enabled me to search for and obtain the maximum amount of coverage to pay for your loss. Sometimes this means "stacking" insurance coverage from two or more different policies.

    For example, our office recently handled a wrongful death case involving a single‑car accident. The loss of a child is the most devastating event in one’s life. Our client’s son was a passenger who was killed in the accident along with the driver of the vehicle and two pedestrians.  I was able to obtain the total policy limits available to compensate our clients for the loss of their son.

To receive the maximum compensation in any wrongful death case, your attorney has to be willing to try it in court. I accept all wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no attorney fees unless we make a recovery for you.
