California wrongful death attorneys at Ginny Walia Law Offices handle all varieties of personal injury lawsuits. When someone dies or is killed because of another party’s negligence, the descendants of the victim are entitled to compensation because of the conduct. A wrongful death lawsuit may be filed as a way to compensate victims that have been damaged as well as an incentive to act in a careful manner. Wrongful death actions generally require four things to be successful.

First, the death must have been caused by the defendant’s conduct. Second, the defendant must have been either strictly liable or negligent in causing the victim’s death. Third, there must be heirs. Heirs are defined as a surviving spouse, any children (whether dependents or not), or any beneficiaries. Finally, there must be some type of monetary loss due to the victim’s death. The California wrongful death lawyers at the Ginny Walia Law Offices understand how to build your case and will work toward the maximum recovery.

What to do if you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or strict liability of a third party?

It is important to gather any of the medical records that lead up to the death. Make sure that you also have copies of the autopsy and any information regarding the cause of death. It is also important to contact a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible . There are statutes of limitations which can restrict the amount of time you have to file a suit after an accident especially if the cause of action is against a government agency. You should only entrust your case to a wrongful death attorney with the knowledge and experience to ensure the maximum recovery.

Selecting an accident attorney:

It is important that the lawyer you hire is experienced and capable of navigating the state and federal laws and regulations governing all types of wrongful death lawsuits, and that your attorney can determine if violation of those laws caused the death. It is very important for a lawyer handling these cases to ensure that all potential sources of compensation are pursued, regardless of where the fault lies.

It is also important that your attorney retains investigators and well-respected experts to investigate the causes of the death. Competent and reliable wrongful death attorneys will invest the necessary resources and efforts to ensure that your case is resolved for the maximum recovery.
