San Diego Injury Law Center Wrongful Death Lawyers
Fighting for families victimized by wrongful death.
When an incident occurs that gives rise to a personal injury claim in San Diego County, those who have been injured often face a long and difficult recovery, but the fact is that many victims over time do recover and get back into their normal routines. However, that is sadly not the case for all victims of negligence or recklessness, and some victims are not even given the choice as to whether they have to pay the ultimate price as a result of someone else’s actions or failure to act death. This where San Diego Injury Law Center’s Wrongful Death Lawyers can help.
While no one even wants to consider this possibility, it is unavoidable for too many people every year in the San Diego area, and if this sounds familiar, you need to contact the San Diego Injury Law Center as soon as possible to schedule a free initial consultation. You do have rights that need to be enforced, and below are just a few examples of the types of damages considerations that could come into play if you pursue a claim.
If your loved one has been wrongfully killed in the eyes of the law, you would be entitled to recover all medical costs that related to his or her treatment before death, all funeral and burial expenses and any other costs you have incurred directly as a result of the incident in question.
Loss Of Income
Obviously, when someone is killed by the actions of another, that victim will no longer be generating income for his or her family or dependents. This is a relevant consideration for damages in a wrongful death case in San Diego County, as the law is always interested in making the victim whole as much as possible in every situation.
Therefore, if you are left to put the pieces of your family’s life back together, the law will basically use an equation to compute how much income your deceased loved one would have earned over the course of his or her working life. This amount is based on several factors, including recent earnings, age, potential number of years the victim would have worked and any other variables.
Loss Of Companionship
Another, less tangible form of damages is called many different things in courtrooms, including loss of consortium, but what they all mean is that you could be entitled to a recovery based on the fact that your loved one/spouse is no longer around to help you through your daily life. Its difficult to put a damages number on such a loss, but thats why you need the help of a wrongful death lawyer to provide you with the guidance you need.
