E-Cigarette Lawsuit Attorney Kristensen Files Suit in San Diego Superior Court You've heard the expression…
The loss of a family member or a loved one is always devastating. But it is especially difficult when it happens to a person who is the head of a household. Not only must family members deal with the emotional pain, they will also have to deal with tremendous financial hardships brought on by the loss of income to pay for routine expenses along with car payments, the rent or mortgage. While nothing can bring your loved-one back, you and your family may be entitled to receive compensation if the death was caused by the negligence of others. These types of personal injury lawsuits are known as wrongful death.
Proving wrongful death is not always easy. The first step is to consult with an experienced and knowledgeable Los Angeles personal injury attorney with a track record of looking after the best interests of each client. During the consultation, it is important to address all of your questions and concerns. To successfully recover wrongful death compensation, there are four important factors that need to be covered.
Although each wrongful case is different, these four factors must be proven by the plaintiff to have the best chance for a favorable outcome. Keep in mind wrongful death in California is a civil case, not a criminal case, meaning the burden of proof is low. The key to winning this type of case is through the preponderance of evidence as opposed to proving reasonable doubt.
Unlike most personal injury lawsuits, wrongful death victims cannot speak on their behalf. It is up to surviving family members to stand up for their rights and for the rights of their loved one.
