Wrongful Death

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is one of the hardest things that anyone can ever deal with. It is even harder when that death was caused by someone else’s negligence. When another person’s wrongful conduct causes the death of a spouse or other family member, you may be entitled to recover for the harms and losses that you suffer because of it.

Here are some things that you are allowed to recover under California law:

The financial support that would have been provided

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • The value of the household services (cooking, cleaning, handyman work, etc.)
  • The loss of gifts or benefits
  • The loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, and moral support.
  • The loss of sexual relations of a spouse
  • The loss of training and guidance

The value of the person you lost is far greater than any amount of money that you can receive in a wrongful death lawsuit. However, the money can make up for some of the loss. Anyone who causes death through their wrongful conduct is required to compensate you for your losses.

At the Barnett and Bennett Law Firm, we are experienced in handling wrongful death cases, and we can help you recover from the person or company who caused the death. By holding these people and companies accountable, we make sure that these people do not injure or kill others.

If your family member has been killed by the wrongful conduct of another person or company, call us today for a free consultation.
