Seeking compensation for wrongful death has specific time limits

The death of a loved one is something that you can't ever prepare for adequately. This is especially true when the death is unexpected. Losing a loved one in a car crash or medical malpractice is something that you might not ever fully recover from.

As hard as it is to think about when you are grieving, you might need to explore the possibility of seeking compensation for the death. While this isn't going to bring your loved one back here, it can help to send a message to the person who caused the death.

We know that you need some space to work through your feelings. This is understandable. Just remember that there are very strict time limits in California when you are going to file a wrongful death lawsuit. You need to make sure that you don't let this time limit pass by because your case won't be heard if you file too late.

As you are trying to find out more about seeking compensation, you will likely have some questions. We will work with you to understand what concerns and questions you have so that you can get those answered.

One of the factors that plays a part in these cases is what type of damages you need to seek. For example, if the person who died was your financial provider, you might need to seek compensation for the loss of that income. You might also seek compensation to cover final medical bills and the funeral and burial costs. Other types of damages might also be possible, so make sure that you think about every way that the death has impacted your life.
