Wrongful Death

Pasadena Wrongful Death Lawyer

Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

At McGee, Lerer & Associates, we would like to extend our condolences to anyone who has lost a family member or friend due to a wrongful death. In the wake of that wrongful death, there may be large hospital and medical bills, burial and funeral costs, and other related debts. For the survivors, there can be the prospect of no viable means of income and a drastic change in the operation of their lives.

At this time, we would like to step forward to assist your family by seeing that fair and full compensation for the wrongful death is paid to those that are deserving. Contact our compassionate husband & wife team today.

A skilled Pasadena personal injury lawyer from our firm knows that a lawsuit brought on behalf of the survivors won't make up for your loss. We can, however, help to ease the financial stress and assist to set a good course for your future. We want you to know that when it comes to our fees, you pay nothing up front. Settlements and jury verdicts that we win pay for our fees and in the event that no money is recovered, you owe us nothing.

Our team understands that no amount of compensation will ever be able to make up for the loss of a loved one. However, by filing a lawsuit, you can help hold the guilty party responsible for what they have done. In order to prove that you have a case, there are certain elements that must be present.

Proving a Wrongful Death Claim

First, you must have to prove that the death of the victim was caused by the negligent actions of another individual or was caused by actions which carried with it the intent to harm. Second, there must be family members surviving the victim that were made to suffer because of their death.

If you have any questions as to whether or not you have a case, please do not hesitate to contact our firm.

Common Causes of Wrongful Deaths

Wrongful deaths can result from car accidents, motorcycle accidents or bicycle accidents. In litigation for wrongful deaths, the actual cause of the fatality must be proven along with who was at fault.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in California?

Those that have suffered due to the wrongful death must be legally established as well. Compensation is commonly paid to:

  • a surviving spouse,
  • next of kin,
  • children,
  • and dependents of the deceased.

Compensation for Wrongful Death Lawsuits

The surviving family members could be entitled to recover compensation for:

  • pain and suffering,
  • lost income,
  • and any other expenses that arose as a result of their death.
