Wrongful death is when someone dies because of the wrongdoing or negligence of a third party. Those who were dependent on the deceased, the surviving family members, may be entitled to compensation for the loss of wages, companionship, emotional support and pain and suffering. At Emanuel Law Group, we can file this lawsuit for you while you take the necessary time to grieve the loss of your loved one.
What are the most common causes of wrongful death?
Car, truck, and train accidents, workplace accidents, medical negligence, defective products, and violent crimes are some of the most common ways that a wrongful death claim comes about in California.
Why do doctors or hospitals get sued for wrongful death?
They may be sued for wrongful death if they give the wrong prescription to someone leading to illness, injury or death, a foreign object is left in a patient’s body, a misdiagnosis occurs and a patient receives the wrong treatment, or other surgical errors, to name a few. Our experienced legal team can investigate your situation in order to determine whether you can file a wrongful death claim for your deceased loved one.
How long do wrongful death lawsuits take?
This will vary depending on the situations, but they can take months to several years. This depends on the amount of insurance given (if applicable), liability and the value of the death as determined by the courts.
