Rialto Wrongful Death Lawyer

The passing of a loved one is never easy. Not only do you have to contend with the grief of a lost life, but the legalities of death are complex within themselves. When a loved one's death was not only unwelcome but also due to someone else’s fault, going through the motions of property management and accident care without a wrongful death lawyer can feel infuriating.

You do not have to let the person responsible for your loved one's passing go unchallenged. Instead, you can collaborate with a Rialto wrongful death attorney. At Kash Legal, our team can fight to hold that party accountable for your loved one's passing.

Causes of Wrongful Deaths

The Overlap Between Negligence and “Wrongful Death”  Cases

Wrongful death cases and negligence tend to go hand-in-hand. Negligence behind the wheel of a car, on another person’s property, or in day-to-day life can see a loved one injured to the point where they cannot recover. You need to bring forward evidence of this negligence if you want to hold a party accountable for your loved one’s loss both prior to and after their death.

You can specifically rely on physical data as proof that your loved one endured an injury that stemmed from negligence. You can also find video footage of the accident resulting in your loved one’s passing. Our team of wrongful death lawyers presents assertions of liability alongside evidence that places a liable party either at the scene or in relation to an item resulting in the injury of a loved one.

Corporations and Individuals Alike Can Cause Wrongful Death

You need the evidence found at the scene of your loved ones’ accidents to determine both how negligence played a role in their passing and who to hold accountable for their passing. Liability for a loved one’s wrongful death can fall on a variety of people. Corporations are as likely to be responsible for your loved one’s passing as individuals are.

The only way to distinguish between the fault of a person and the fault of a corporation is to look at the aforementioned data. The classification of your wrongful death accident, be it related to a car crash, a dog bite, or similar personal injury case, can also determine which parties our attorneys look to hold accountable.


Establishing the Value of Your Wrongful Death case

Once you’ve determined who to hold liable for your losses and how you intend to implicate them, you need to determine what compensation you are requesting on a loved one’s behalf. This process can be complex. In some cases, you will have the right to request damages for both your own suffering and the suffering of a loved one.

This means that you have to calculate the value of the economic damages tied up in your loved one’s passing. You can, for example, request coverage for medical expenses obtained prior to your loved one’s passing. Your complaint may also include a demand citing the cost of your property damage, lost wages, or funeral expenses.

You also have the right to demand non-economic damages in a wrongful death case. This can range from loss of consortium to loss of companionship and pain and suffering. Our attorneys will rely on state-approved multipliers to stand in for the economic value of these losses.

Who Can Pursue Wrongful Death Wrongful Death Cases in California

Only certain parties are allowed to pursue wrongful death cases on behalf of a loved one. Specifically, California limits actionable parties to a person’s spouse, children, or parents. If none of these parties are available or wish to seek legal action, the right to legal action falls to a deceased person’s personal representative.

If the deceased individual failed to elect a personal representative prior to their passing, the state can elect one for them. You can discuss what rights you may have to act on a loved one’s behalf during an initial consultation with a wrongful death lawyer in Rialto.

Your Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations in California

The amount of time in which you have to bring a wrongful death case to the attention of a civil court in California is unfortunately limited. Wrongful death cases, like many other cases, fall under the umbrella of personal injury claims. This means that you must apply California’s personal injury statute of limitations to the broader case.

Parties acting on behalf of a deceased loved one have two years to bring a case forward on their behalf. Failure to bring a case forward within this timeframe sees you waive the right to act on behalf of a loved one.

Note that the same deadline applies to your own ability to bring forward a case detailing the losses you individually faced in your loved one’s accident. You can work with an attorney to file these cases while keeping the deadline for both in mind.
