Wrongful Death Attorney in Oakland
Fatal Accidents in the Bay Area
Though it may be nowhere near the forefront of your mind, consulting with an attorney after the loss of a loved one in an accident is an important step to take. There are issues that you will need to deal with, and an attorney can help you with all of these while you take the time to handle necessary arrangements and focus on what counts: your loved one's memory.
Losing a Loved One - Your Legal Rights
Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences for a family to endure. Under California law, a person who has lost a close relative or family member may have the right to take legal action against the responsible party. This action is taken in civil court and enables the family to seek financial compensation from the person or entity that caused the death of their loved one. These cases are referred to as "wrongful death" lawsuits and may be filed in a variety of circumstances, after a car accident,
drunk driving accident,
construction accident or other incident that involved a death caused by negligence or intentional wrongdoing.
