A wrongful death occurs when a person or company is negligent and is shown to be the legal cause of death of another person. In California, certain heirs of a deceased person may file a claim to recover damages for the death. The claims are brought to compensate families for the loss of their loved one.
Retaining a lawyer after the passing of a loved one may not be the first thing on your mind. It is hard to carry on. However, financial strain from loss of income, loss of financial support, and costs caused by the death are part of the loss that occurs when someone passes away. The sooner a lawyer is retained, the sooner you can be compensated for the financial loss. Additionally, damages from wrongful death include the loss of companionship, care, and comfort that the deceased provided. As with other types of claims, the Virga Law Firm does not charge fees unless there is a recovery.
