Wrongful death cases represent the most extreme of catastrophic injuries that happen in Los Angeles and Southern California. Wrongful death means simply that an innocent victim dies because of the negligence of someone else. Unfortunately, in this type of case, the victim’s family is also the victim and suffers a great deal.
Losing a loved one is a very difficult experience, especially if the death was caused due to a preventable accident and was untimely. These preventable accidents may be due to defective or dangerous products, vehicle accidents, medical malpractice or many other types of negligence that may ultimately lead to wrongful death.
If your loved one died due to a preventable death caused by negligence or any other avoidable reason, he or she may have been a victim of a “wrongful death” and as a surviving family member of the victim, you have the right to hold the negligent person (or party) accountable for their negligent actions.
