Sacramento Wrongful Death Attorney | Sacramento Wrongful Death Lawyer

A "wrongful death" occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, company or entity.

Whether in a fatal car accident, related traffic fatality, or other catastrophic accident, the loss of a loved one is a tragic event. No amount of money can ever replace a parent, spouse or child lost in a fatal accident. However, when someone dies through the fault of another, the surviving family members may be compensated for their financial losses in a wrongful death lawsuit. Available damages in a wrongful death lawsuit include: medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of future earnings, and loss of support, love, affection and guidance.

Because the deceased family member is not available to bring a case against the person responsible for the loss, their estate is often authorized by wrongful death law to do so on his or her behalf. An executor or administrator, who may be a spouse, child, parent, or other relative, represents the estate.

Statutes of Limitations and the Discovery Rule: All civil actions, including wrongful death actions, have time limits as to when they must be filed. These time limits, or "limitations periods," are contained in laws called "statutes of limitations." If you do not file your action before the expiration of the applicable limitations period, in most cases, you permanently waive your rights to recover damages in a cause of action.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident it is important to protect your legal rights.
