Wrongful Death Damages

The civil courts in Lancaster, Palmdale and throughout the Antelope Valley recognize the right of surviving family members to sue for the wrongful death of a loved one, and if you prevail in your claim you could receive comprehensive financial compensation for the economic and non-economic losses you have suffered.

These include the costs of:

  • Medical expenses incurred in relation to the fatal injury or illness
  • Loss of earnings and other financial contributions which you could have reasonably expected to receive
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Value of lost personal service, advice and training
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium

Seek Justice for Your Loved One

We understand that no amount of money can replace the tragic loss of a loved one. Your wrongful death claim is about more than the money. In addition to claiming financial compensation, our goal in a wrongful death case is to help our clients obtain justice by holding the other party accountable for his or her negligent actions.

By taking legal action now, you may not only be able to receive monetary damages, you could also help to protect others from suffering similar injuries in the future, whether you are suing a drunk driver, a negligent medical practitioner, or the manufacturer of a defective product.


Do You Have Questions?

  • If someone else's negligence or carelessness caused your accident, you have the right to pursue financial compensation for your damages. Speak with a lawyer from Accident Attorneys to learn more about your legal rights and options with our firm. You can also fill out an online evaluation form for additional information about your unique case.

  • Every case is different. A variety of circumstances determine the value of your claim. Property damage, medical expenses, hospitalization fees, pain, and suffering, missed wages, and many other factors can affect the outcome of your case.

    You can even collect damages for future unemployment / missed wages and ongoing medical costs. Speak with a member of the legal team at Accident Attorneys to learn more about the potential value of your case.

  • If you file a claim against an individual, his / her insurance company is probably aware of the judgment. If the insurance is unaware of the settlement, you can notify the insurer. At this point, the insurance provider should issue a check for the settlement.

    If the responsible party does not have insurance, you may need to enter the settlement with the court. The court has the authority to enforce the judgment if the responsible party refuses to pay.

  • There is no minimum amount of money allowed for a personal injury settlement; every case is determined by the unique facts surrounding the claim. Additionally, most jurisdictions do not have a cap on the amount of my money that you can receive through a personal injury settlement.

    In California, the amount of money that you can receive for noneconomic damages (pain, suffering, etc.) for a medical malpractice case is limited to $250,000; however, other injury settlements are not subject to this restriction.

  • Generally speaking, parents are not allowed to access any money given to their child for a personal injury settlement. This is because some parents may take the money for their own benefit instead of the child.

    Your child's money will probably be placed in a blocked bank account that only he / she can access at the age of 18. The court may allow you to access the money sooner, but only if it is needed for the child's well-being or health.
