What compensation is available for a wrongful death in Mission Viejo or Orange County? Every life is precious, and when it is your spouse, a parent, or one of your children you will never see again, there is nothing you wouldn’t give to be able to have them healthy and happy beside you. There is also no price you can place upon their life.
The State of California provides for civil compensation when someone loses their life due to the negligence of another. This is legally known as a “wrongful death.” There are several measurable financial costs that can affect you when a loved one has needlessly died because of a wrongful act or preventable accident. These include, but are not limited to:
- Any medical bills and final expenses
- Loss of the income of a primary wage earner
There is also compensation for those things which are beyond value such as the loss of love and companionship with a beloved spouse, parent or child.
Such financial matters are the last thing you need to worry about during a difficult time. You need to focus on your family’s well-being, not how to pay for daily living expenses, funeral costs, and medical bills.
A wrongful death lawsuit is not about money. It is about holding people and business entities accountable for their actions. A lawsuit is about getting help and closure in the wake of a tragedy. It is about preventing others from experiencing the same difficulties you have faced when a loved one needlessly dies.
