Accidents Involving Wrongful Death and Catastrophic Injuries
If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, or if you lost a family member to wrongful death, you know that money cannot undo the damage or bring back the person you lost. Nothing but time and the support of friends and family can ease the pain you feel. However, receiving compensation from the negligent party can help you recoup costs related to the traumatic event. Moreover, many people find closure in holding the responsible party accountable, by providing some justice for the victim of the catastrophic injury or wrongful death.
Families who are traumatized by a catastrophic injury or wrongful death often lose their primary financial provider. Our attorneys can help alleviate the financial stress on families by recovering past and future wage losses for burdened families.
Our Bay Area wrongful death lawyers have experience with the most serious catastrophic injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries and head trauma
- Spinal cord trauma and back injuries
- Paralysis, quadriplegia and paraplegia
- Loss of limb and amputations
- Broken bones and serious fractures
- First-, second- and third-degree burns
- Injuries to children
Our wrongful death attorneys also handle fatal cases involving accidental death. If you have lost a loved one, our team of wrongful death attorneys will assist you in understanding who can file a wrongful death claim and explain why you need an experienced wrongful death lawyer for these particular types of cases.
Our Wrongful Death Attorneys Will Work To Get You The Compensation You Deserve
Our highly skilled team of trial attorneys understand that the lives of everyone in a family will change after a catastrophic injury or wrongful death. Family members may find that they have to become caregivers or take on new roles within the family. Some people may have to give up their jobs to care for an injured loved one while others may have to enter the workforce to help pay the bills. In addition, the emotional trauma suffered by the family can have an enormous impact on everyone.
We work closely with families to ensure that all of their needs are met. Working with economic experts, doctors and life-care planners, we will calculate your past and future losses. This may include medical bills, long-term medical treatment, lost income, pain and suffering, funeral expenses and compensation for the loss of a loved one.
