3 Reasons to Call a Lawyer After a Wrongful Death

by Staff Blogger | December 18th, 2017

At Berg Injury Lawyers, we handle a variety of accident and injury claims. And while many cases we take involve victims and their families dealing with difficult situations, wrongful death claims are some of the most painful and traumatic scenarios we see.

Losing a loved one is devastating. Not only is it emotionally painful, but it can also put your entire family in a financial bind, especially if your loved one was the primary income earner for your household. It can be even more difficult to cope with an unexpected loss when a loved one’s death was due to another person’s or party’s negligence.

Our California wrongful death lawyers are dedicated to helping surviving family members get the compensation they deserve after someone else’s carelessness led to fatal complications, accidents, or injuries to someone they love.

If we handle your wrongful death claim, you can count on us to:

  1. Determine who can be held responsible. Whether it was due to a medical mistake, an accident, or general misconduct, we’ll gather evidence that proves the other party’s liability.
  2. Calculate the damages. Medical bills, lost income, and funeral expenses are financial issues that many families face after they lose their loved ones. We’ll make sure the insurance company knows how the wrongful death has and will continue to affect you.
  3. Negotiate a fair settlement. We’ll review any and all settlement offers with you. It’s our goal to help you get maximum compensation.

If your loved one’s death was caused by someone else’s negligence, don’t wait to get our experienced legal team on your side. Contact us today for a free consultation. We’re here to help.
