Pasadena Wrongful Death Lawyer

Lawsuits for Fatal Accidents

When a person is killed due to the negligence or carelessness of another person, product, or company, the surviving family members can bring a wrongful death suit against the responsible party for their loved one's unjust, untimely, and unnecessary death.

A wrongful death suit can be filed in the following circumstances:

  • A negligent or careless act such as an inattentive driver
  • A motor vehicle/trucking accident caused by a defective equipment
  • Death due to a reckless or irresponsible act by another person
  • Intentional and/or deliberate acts of violence such as murder, assault, and/or battery
  • Unintentional death in the course of another crime
  • Unintentional death during a medical procedure
  • Death due to neglect of a doctor, hospital or nursing home
  • Defective drugs or wrong medication
  • Negligence in the enforcement of safety regulations
  • Use of faulty equipment or tools
  • A negligent property owner who fails to meet safety regulations

Let Us Help You Seek Justice for Your Loss

Whether your loved one has been killed in a car accident, construction accident, or motorcycle accident in the Pasadena area, The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus will work hard to get your family the compensation you deserve.

Compensation is awarded to the victim's family to cover medical, hospital, funeral and burial expenses; pain and suffering on the part of the victim from the time of injury to the death; and losses suffered by the deceased's spouse, children, or next of kin.

At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we realize that no amount of money can compensate families for the tremendous loss and grief they are experiencing after their loved one's wrongful death, but we do everything possible to get you the financial support you need to pay for expenses incurred because of this tragedy.

If your loved one has died because of someone's negligence, you should contact a Pasadena wrongful death lawyer at The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus as soon as possible!
