Wrongful Death Compensation
Although finances may not be at the forefront of your concern, there are many expenses associated with personal injury. If your loved one was injured or killed as a result of negligence, you and your family may be entitled to compensation. Our attorneys will be with you by your side and guide you through every step of the process. When someone dies and leaves dependents behind, there is a concern of financial support. In California, the law considers this in the damages. The courts will use a formula to calculate how much your loved one would have earned in the course of his or her employed lifetime. This will include the most recent earnings, the victim’s age, and an estimate of how long employment would have continued. This potential income is included in reparation to ensure that surviving loved ones are provided for in their loved one’s absence. Another consideration that is somewhat more difficult to measure is called a loss of companionship or a loss of consortium. This basically means that surviving family members are entitled to a certain loss recovery because the victim is no longer around to help with daily life. This is not a tangible thing that can be measured and it is difficult to put a number on this kind of loss. This is why it is important to hire an experienced wrongful death attorney that will fight for your and your family to be compensated for these losses.
