Wrongful Death

The sudden, unexpected loss of a loved one is always a devastating event. When the death is the result of the negligent actions of another party, the pain and suffering of surviving relatives is only worsened. The personal injury lawyers of Hodes Milman Liebeck are sensitive to the emotional hardships of the families that file wrongful death lawsuits and aggressive in pursuing financial justice on their behalf.

A wrongful death accident can be the result of an intentional act, such as murder or homicide, or the tragic consequence of an automobile accident. In order to prevail in court, the plaintiff must establish that the negligent, reckless, or wanton actions or inaction of the defendant was the reason for the death.

Our aggressive, proven attorneys have an established reputation for achieving substantial financial settlements and jury awards for our valued clients and will fight for your legal rights.

Wrongful Death Claims

In order to build a wrongful death case, our lawyers must be able to show that your loved one’s death was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another. Fatalities caused by the following acts or incidents may warrant a wrongful death lawsuit:

  • Car accident
  • Collision with tractor trailer
  • Motorcycle crash
  • Pedestrian or bicycle accident
  • Medical malpractice
  • Failure to properly diagnose disease
  • Use of defective product
  • Improper testing of dangerous drug
  • Slip and fall accident
  • Violent crime
  • Reckless or negligent act

Because California statute of limitations laws limit the length of time in which a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed, you should consult with a lawyer as soon as you possibly can after the loss of your loved one.
