Rights Under California’s Wrongful Death Statute

Under California law, a surviving spouse or family member of someone killed in an accident can generally sue the party at fault (and often, that party’s insurer) for damages. This is known as a wrongful death action. The damages recoverable in a wrongful death action can include payment for:

  • Loss of the deceased’s financial support;
  • Loss of the value of services the deceased would have provided; 
  • Loss of the deceased’s guidance or training; 
  • Loss of the deceased’s society, guidance, companionship, or consortium; 
  • Costs associated with the death, including medical, funeral, and burial expenses. 

In addition to your rights to seek the damages above, your loved one’s estate may separately sue the at-fault party for compensatory and punitive damages through a companion lawsuit known as a survival action, which asserts any personal injury claims your loved one could have pursued had death not occurred. Contacting the team at Kash Legal is a reliable way to learn about the potential compensation available in a legal action arising out of the death of your loved one in Modesto. 

Examples of Wrongful Death Cases We Handle

Kash Legal has a wide range of experience in wrongful death cases. Many different types of accidents caused by wrongful conduct can lead to an untimely and tragic death in Modesto. Clients may seek our team’s help, for example, after losing a loved one in a:

  • Car, truck, or bus accident;
  • Motorcycle accident;
  • Bicycle accident;
  • Pedestrian accident;
  • Slip and fall accident;
  • Construction accident; or
  • Violent crime. 

Of course, this is not a complete list, but merely an illustration of the diversity of situations that can lead to tragedy. We invite anyone who has lost a loved one in Modesto under circumstances involving someone else’s careless, reckless, or intentional actions to contact us to learn about their rights in a free consultation with a member of our team. 

Our Services in Wrongful Death Cases

A wrongful death frequently throws the lives of those left behind into turmoil. The combination of grief, stress, and financial uncertainty can make it difficult to know where to turn for help or how to make responsible decisions. And that, in turn, can lead to costly mistakes and the loss of valuable rights. 

The team at Kash Legal aims to preserve and advance the interests of spouses and families mourning the loss of their loved ones in an accident. Our ultimate goal in most cases is to secure compensation on our client’s behalf, but the legal services we provide often touch on other aspects of navigating the difficult period after a tragedy. As a full-service wrongful death law firm, we can: 

  • Act as a trusted advisor in making decisions that may affect your rights;  
  • Serve as your representative in dealings with insurance companies, official investigators, and the media; 
  • Take quick action to preserve crucial evidence or to protect your rights to pursue a wrongful death claim; 
  • Answer your questions promptly and give clear explanations of your rights and choices; 
  • Investigate the circumstances of your loved one’s death to identify root causes and at-fault parties; 
  • Prepare and submit well-documented, persuasive insurance claims and lawsuits seeking damages for your loss; 
  • Negotiate favorable settlements and advise you about when and whether to settle a claim; 
  • Go to trial to present your wrongful death case to a judge and jury; 
  • Collect and distribute the money owed to you under the terms of an insurance policy, settlement, jury award, or court order. 

We also understand that the death of your loved one can put you under unexpected financial strain. That is why we offer a No Win, No Fee Guarantee in wrongful death cases. We do not charge you or your loved one’s estate an upfront fee or hourly rates. Our fee consists only of an agreed percentage of the money we succeed in recovering on your behalf. If you do not get your results, you owe us nothing.
