Wrongful Death Lawsuits Can Provide Justice For Families

At McKnight and McKnight Law, APC, in Bakersfield, California, our lawyers represent families who have lost loved ones as a result of the negligence or wrongful actions of other parties. We understand that there are few events more personally and emotionally devastating than the loss of a loved one or family member in a fatal accident. While you are grieving, however, you may also be facing important legal and financial issues that will affect you and/or your family’s future.

We offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights under California law and answer your questions. To discuss a wrongful death case with an experienced California personal injury lawyer, call us at 661-578-5669. You may send an email if you prefer.

Recovering Sufficient Compensation Is Critical In A Wrongful Death Case

While nothing can bring your family member back, California law allows you to seek compensation for your losses, including:

  • Financial support the deceased person provided
  • Services performed by the deceased person
  • Emotional damages including loss of love, companionship, comfort, affection or moral support due to the loss of a parent, child or spouse
  • Medical expenses incurred prior to death
  • Funeral expenses

You will likely have considerable financial losses from the accident. This is especially true if the decedent was a wage-earning member of the family. We work hard to accurately calculate your losses from the accident today and in the future. For example, we will seek compensation for the income and benefits the person would have contributed to your family in the future. Recovering that compensation is crucial to the well-being of your family as you move forward.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can sometimes help families get answers to their questions, too. For example, if your loved one was killed in a car accident, he or she will be unable to tell his or her side of how the accident happened. Through a wrongful death suit, our legal system can make a finding of liability and hold the responsible party accountable for the devastation they caused.

Our lawyers can manage your legal and financial concerns while you handle your grief and the emotional needs of your family. We are responsive lawyers and will be here whenever you need us.
