With the unexpected and sudden death of a family member or friend comes grief, sadness, pain, and devastation. When the death of a loved one or close friend occurs in a fatal accident caused by someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior, the family members of the deceased are entitled to hold the wrong party liable for their loss with a claim for wrongful death.
At Harrison Barnes, A Professional Law Corporation, a Los Angeles based wrongful death law firm, we understand that money, regardless of the amount, will not dull the pain or feeling of loss and it certainly will not reverse the death. Our role and intentions are not to replace your loved one or dull your pain with money. Death is final and unfortunately, cannot be reversed. However, the blow of losing someone will affect your emotions and life in many ways. Autopsy reports, medical bills, funeral costs, loss of income and support, health insurance benefits, and destabilization can cause massive financial woes and have a tremendous impact on your future and that of your family in many ways.
A claim for wrongful death can be made following an accident caused by anyone but the deceased. The surviving family members or anyone subject to the wrongful death of any kind can bring a claim against the negligent party involved or responsible for the accident. The lawyers of Harrison Barnes, A Professional Law Corporation have represented numerous families in their claims of wrongful death arising from construction accidents, bicycle accidents, roller coaster accidents, boat accidents, SUV rollovers, medical negligence, fatal falls, bus accidents, auto accidents, dog attacks, pedestrian accidents, and much more. We have gained extensive experience in dealing with wrongful death claims and have the financial capabilities required to present your case to a judge, in the event that we are unable to acquire an out of court settlement.
No two cases are the same, regardless of similarities. In some instances establishing the cause of death and liability for the death of a loved one may be blatantly obvious. In other cases, proving a solid liability built on facts may prove to be tedious and challenging. Regardless of the difficulty or ease involved in fingering the liable party, choosing a competent, experienced attorney to take on your claim is of paramount importance. At Harrison Barnes, A Professional Law Corporation, our lawyers work to achieve results and will do anything within their legal power to make the process as fast and painless as possible.
With the statute of limitations placing a time constraint on filing a claim, it is crucial to meet with a lawyer as soon as possible to go over your potential claim. In some cases, such as ones where the liable party is a government agency, you may be given six months to bring up a claim.
