Stuart Sherman Is Dedicated To Representing Wrongful Death Victims In Ventura County
When an individual dies as the result of another person’s negligence or reckless conduct, his or her family is legally entitled to receive compensation for their loss. If you have recently lost a loved one due another person’s negligence, it is important that you file a wrongful death claim as soon as possible. Failure to do so may waive your right to recover damages.
Wrongful death laws were established to protect husbands, wives, children, parents, relatives, and other dependents. Under California wrongful death law, the decedent’s spouse, children, heirs, and dependents are entitled to receive compensation for both their economic and non-economic suffering. Economic losses include:
- Funeral expenses
- Medical expenses
- Estate planning
- Loss of benefits (i.e. insurance, pension, 401K, etc.)
- Lost wages or earnings
- Lost future earnings
- Financial support
- Household assistance
- Prospective inheritances
Non-Economic losses include:
- Moral support
There are a variety of circumstances that commonly cause wrongful death, such as slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, exposure to hazardous chemicals or materials, and defective products or machinery.
In order to successfully file a wrongful death claim, you must prove that the decedent’s death was caused by another person’s negligent behavior, and that you are going to face severe financial hardship in the future. At the Law Office of Stuart Sherman, our Wrongful Death Attorneys in Ventura County are well-versed in this area of personal injury law, and utilize highly effective strategies in order to secure favorable results for our clients.
