Fatal accidents in Mission Viejo often lead to wrongful death lawsuits. If the victim of a fatal accident in Mission Viejo or anywhere in Orange County California loses their life due to another driver’s fault or negligence it is known legally as a “wrongful death“. Wrongful death cases can be quite legally complex, especially if the victim survived the accident and perished a few days, weeks or months later.
My name is Rivers Morrell and I have more than 40 years of experience in wrongful death cases. Wrongful death cases are primarily about taking care of and communicating with the family, and providing extensive and excellent legal work. There are often multiple parties to identify and hold accountable, especially if the fatal accident involved a commercial vehicle, delivery van or truck.
Motorcycle accidents that are deemed to be the fault of the biker themselves are not wrongful death cases, however a passenger always has a claim. Mission Viejo roads and I-5 are heavily traveled, and unfortunately the rate of loss of life in accidents in our area is among the highest in the State of California.
