Have You Lost a Loved One in an Accident?
About Wrongful Death Lawsuits
The death of a family member at any time can be a difficult and shocking loss for those left behind. When such a death should never have happened in the first place and was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, it can be even more devastating. Such a situation is called a wrongful death and the party responsible for it may be held liable for damages to certain family members. Wrongful deaths may occur due to auto accidents, falls, drowning, medical malpractice or through any number of scenarios where someone else acted or failed to act in a responsible way.
If you have lost a family member because of a wrongful death in Palm Springs or any of the communities in the Coachella Valley, it is important that you consult with Barry Regar APLC about your case. Mr. Regar has compassion and a wealth of experience and legal abilities with which to help you establish your legitimate claim or lawsuit to recover damages connected with your loss. Because of the California Statute of Limitations requiring adults to file wrongful death lawsuits within 2 years of the family member's death and the need to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death while preserving vital evidence it is crucial that you consult with him at your earliest opportunity in order to ensure that your legal rights are protected.
Seeking Justice & Restitution for Your Loss
In wrongful death cases, the jury will consider the amount of damages you may recover based on what your family has lost in terms of vital income that the deceased provided, vital services that he or she provided, medical expenses incurred before death, funeral expenses, and any loss of the care, comfort, society and affection of the decedent. Of course wrongful death cases often can be settled out of court either before or after the lawsuit is filed. What you will recover will be based on the specific facts of the case.
Though nothing can bring back the person you have lost, seeking justice through a wrongful death claim may bring closure to family members in such cases. Talk to Attorney Regar about your situation to get the experienced legal help you need and deserve.
