When an individual suffers from an injury, illness or death through a negligent act, the close family may have the right to file a wrongful death claim. These cases have a statute of limitations and a strict window of time in which to file a civil claim demanding financial compensation for your loss. If you have lost a family member through such an act, it is crucial that you contact a Riverside personal injury lawyer to discuss the case. The legal team at our firm is prepared to review your situation and advise you what legal action can be taken and how we will proceed with your case. There are a wide variety of types of injury cases that have resulted in the loss of life, from a slip and fall, car accident, or other. Each case must be carefully documented, and it is critical that the Riverside wrongful death lawyer gets involved early in order to ensure that specific evidence of negligence is not lost. We understand the extreme emotional devastation suffered by the families in such cases, and our compassionate legal team will take action to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions in a civil claim.
Our firm has the extensive experience necessary in such cases, as they
often are resolved in court, and it may be necessary to construct a case
to present to the court. In other cases, the negligent party may choose
to settle prior to a trial; in either situation, our careful case preparation
increases the possibility of a faster resolution when filing a wrongful
death claim on your behalf.
