Wrongful Death

At Balamuth Law, our Bay Area wrongful death lawyers understand how devastating the loss of a loved one can be. When a death is caused by someone else's carelessness, it's natural to agonize over why it had to happen, and desire nothing more than a semblance of closure.

A wrongful death may be the result of any number of factors, including recklessness or negligence by another person or party. Listed below are just a few examples of personal injury accidents which may cause fatal injuries:

  • Auto accidents - including truck, motorcycle or weather-related auto accidents.
  • Construction site accidents - such as explosions due to compressed gas, dangerous and defective machinery, or collapsing scaffolding.
  • Medical malpractice - including the delayed diagnosis of a serious disease, surgical error, or medication overdose by an inattentive physician.
  • Dangerous products - including flammable materials, contaminated food products or products which may pose choking hazards.

When you hire a skilled wrongful death lawyer, you can be certain that a thorough investigation will take place and that all the necessary steps will be taken to preserve all evidence.

You have the right to hold the negligent party liable for their actions! In California, a wrongful death case is one where the most immediate family members of a decedent file a lawsuit claiming the decedent's death was someone's fault. A wrongful death suit is different from other types of personal injury claims because the person bringing the claim is not the actual victim, but the person (or people) left behind.

The purpose of a wrongful death suit is to provide financial relief to family members who have been injured emotionally and financially as a result of their loved one's death. The sudden passing of a loved one may result in a family member being expected to pay for the expenses of the accident and resulting death; such as hospital bills, funeral costs, and burial expenses. With the representation of a skilled Contra Costa wrongful death lawyer, you may be able to receive compensation for these expenses, in addition to other expenses, such as your loved one's lost wages and the loss of your loved one's companionship.

Wrongful death cases can be difficult, fraught with emotion and loss. Our Oakland personal injury attorneys respect our clients and do our best not only to maximize their recovery but also to remain as sensitive as we can to our clients' needs while still providing aggressive representation.
