Our lives are precious and we do everything we can to preserve them. We also do everything we can to keep our loved ones safe and out of harm’s way. Still, there is only so much we can do. There is no way to keep our loved ones and ourselves completely safe from getting killed in an unforeseen event.
At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, we pursue wrongful death claims on behalf of families who have lost loved ones in accidents. More specifically, we pursue claims against negligent parties who, through their lack of responsibility, caused the death of another person.
As a result of our firm’s tremendous amount of experience in wrongful death litigation, we have seen a wide variety of fatal accident scenarios, and we have pursued claims against a wide variety of defendants. In many cases, defendants are drunk drivers who negligently got behind the wheel or motorists who failed to follow traffic laws, and put the lives of other California residents in danger. In other kinds of wrongful death actions, the defendants are negligent manufacturing companies that built defective motor vehicles, dangerous automotive parts or dangerous products. Defendants might also be negligent property owners or business owners who failed to maintain the safety of their premises.
At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, we are well aware of the fact that no amount of litigation will ever bring back a loved one lost to another party’s negligence. However, the process of moving forward with a wrongful death case can help grieving family members gain a sense of justice and closure regarding their loss. Furthermore, if the claim is successfully navigated, family members may also be able to secure financial compensation for costs that resulted from their loved one’s death, such as lost family income, end of life expenses, lost companionship, emotional turmoil and other categories of damages.
