When you lose a loved one, or loved ones, there is no greater despair. There is no bottom to the depth of pain and suffering you experience every day. You may experience emotional breaks during the most mundane of tasks, and that is normal. Little things can trip you up because you are used to accounting for a loved one and when they are suddenly not there, you can’t stop thinking that they are still around. It takes time to adjust to that.
Whether your loved one went to do a job and never came back, was involved in a fatal car, truck or boating accident, the loss of your loved one, when caused by the negligence or reckless disregard of another, should warrant compensation.
Sometimes a person will not be found guilty in a criminal court, and you feel like justice has not been served. However, in cases such as that, you may still have grounds for holding the person accountable in a civil court. When you do this, you send a message that this behavior is not okay, and while the actions of the defendant were not penalized from a criminal standpoint, you may be able to penalize them from a financial one.
When a loved one is taken from you, and someone is to blame, whether it’s a person or a company, you may have solid grounds for recourse and remuneration. A California attorney who is no stranger to wrongful death battles may be able to listen to your case and help you to identify the best course of action.
