Ventura Wrongful Death Lawyer

The unforeseen death of a loved one can be one of the most painful emotional experiences a person can go through in their lifetime. When your loved one is so quickly pulled out of your life, it may feel as if nothing will ever be the same, and the saddest part comes with knowing that the death didn’t have to happen.

Every day in California, innocent people lose their lives due to the negligence of others, and this is a sad truth that many family members, friends, and loved ones are forced to face. At the Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we realize the difficulty of your situation and will do everything we can to recover the financial resources you will need to rebuild your life after suffering such a devastating loss. When a person is accidently killed because of another person’s negligence, it is known as wrongful death.

California Law allows the family members of those killed in wrongful death accidents to seek restitution from the person or company responsible for the accident. The family of the victim can seek either economic damages (covering such expenses as medical bills, funeral expenses, estate planning fees, lost future wages, loss of benefits, etc.) or non-economic damages (to cover the loss of love, security, companionship, guidance, comfort, care, support, etc.).

Wrongful Death Attorney Serving Ventura County

After suffering the loss of your loved one, seeking attorney representation is probably the farthest thing from your mind, but you should realize that you have a limited amount of time in which to take legal action. The sooner you hire a wrongful death lawyer to handle your case, the more time your attorney will have to work on your claim, increasing your chances of maximum compensation.
