Fatal Accident Attorney Serving the Inland Empire
Losing someone you love in an accident due to the negligence of another is an overwhelming experience. Without warning, your life has been irreparably changed. You and the family need to focus on working through the grief of this loss, and the process of working out how things will be moving forward. The last things most of my clients want at this point is to have to deal with the hassle of insurance and legal issues.
In California, the loss of life due to the negligence of another is known as a “wrongful death.” The family and loved ones of the victim are able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit in order to hold those who were responsible financially accountable for what has happened. This isn’t just about money – you can’t replace a loved one with money. It is about moving forward – expenses to honor your loved one, college tuition, day care, support for a lost income, counseling and emotional support for you and any child affected by this loss.
My name is Rivers J. Morrell, III and I have served the residents of Corona and the Inland Empire for more than 40 years. I have helped hundreds of families through wrongful death lawsuits, and have extensive experience not only with the legal process, but with supporting the family and ensuring that they receive the maximum possible settlement or legal verdict in the loss of their loved one. Wrongful death cases are quite legally complex and it is important to seek an attorney with extensive experience and legal skill in these cases.
Why is It Important to Contact an Experienced Corona Wrongful Death Lawyer As Soon As Possible?
The first reason is California puts a fairly short limit on the time frame in which a wrongful death case must be filed. The primary reason is the protection of crucial evidence and witness statements. It is important to capture vital evidence, interview witnesses and police who were at the scene and preserve important memories, information and documentation that tends to fade over time.
Insurance companies will often try to say that the victim contributed in some way to the accident, in an attempt to offset the liability of their own client and reduce the amount of money they have to pay as a result. It may be necessary to reconstruct what happened in order to prove the negligence of the other party and hold them accountable.
The most important reason is simply to relieve yourself and the family of any worry related to insurance and your loved one’s legal case.
