Why Should I File a Wrongful Death Claim?

The loss of a loved one in an accident caused by another party or entity’s negligence may result in profound pain and devastation. The initial sadness and grief may be compounded by frustration and anger, knowing that the loss could have been prevented had the other party exercised due care to the decedent. A way that surviving family members may hold the at-fault party accountable is through a wrongful death action. In a fatal motorcycle accident case, a claim may be brought against the insurance company representing the other party to seek economic and non-economic damages. These cases may seek recovery of medical expenses related to the loved one’s death, loss of future financial support, funeral service costs, mental anguish, loss of companionship, and more.

No amount of financial compensation may ever undo the pain of losing a family member or bring them back, but an experienced Stockton wrongful death attorney will be committed to helping survivors hold at-fault parties accountable. Though these cases may be emotional and trying legal matters, a skilled attorney may help a family overcome the challenges that may arise in the process. Survivors should count on a lawyer that has the experience, skills, and resources to handle their case and obtain the outcomes they deserve.
