As our San Diego wrongful death lawyers know all too well, the unexpected death of a loved one causes unimaginable grief, which the victim’s friends and family will carry with them for the remainder of their life. Learning to live the entirety of your life without a spouse, a child or a parent can seem like an insurmountable challenge, one which nobody can really connect to unless they have experienced such a loss.
To make things more serious, whenever a loved one’s death was wrongfully triggered by the negligent, reckless or deliberate acts of another, the surviving household members may be left with financial hardships. Working with our San Diego wrongful death attorneys, a wrongful death case can be brought by the victim’s surviving heirs against the wrong-doer to recover funeral and medical expenses, any lost wages, loss of future earnings of the deceased person, and loss of company and services. Although no amount of cash can compensate for the loss the victim’s loved ones are experiencing, getting financial compensation will relieve the economic stress and anxiety that the surviving family members experience.
