Huntington Beach Wrongful Death Lawyer

Huntington Beach wrongful death cases are a unique type of personal injury action in which recovery is sought for the heirs of an individual whose death was caused by the acts or omissions of another. These lawsuits are often brought by the spouses and children of the victims of the decedent, and any financial recovery obtained will go directly to the estate to be lawfully distributed to heirs or other eligible parties.

The essential components of a successful wrongful death lawsuit include the actual occurrence of an individual's death, proof that the death was the result of another's negligence or intentional act, monetary and/or emotional harm to the decedent's family resulting from their absence, and the existence of a personal representative for the estate. If your family has suffered financially due to the wrongful death of one of its members, contact a Huntington Beach wrongful death injury lawyer with the Liljegren Law Group at 866-613-9906 so that the process of securing compensation can begin.

Common Circumstances Leading to Wrongful Death in Huntington Beach

Wrongful death can be the result of a broad range of acts or omissions by others, involving events such as:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Airline crashes
  • Animal attacks
  • Occupational exposure to harmful materials or conditions
  • Medical malpractice
  • Violent crimes
  • Failure of responsible parties to supervise activities involving risk

Types of Compensation Available in Wrongful Death Cases

The purpose of wrongful death litigation is to compensate a victim's family for the loss of financial support, potential inheritance and future earnings, and to reimburse the estate for medical and burial expenses incurred. Interest on any financial awards ultimately achieved will also be recoverable, and will be calculated from the date of death. Expert testimony is generally necessary in order to put a dollar amount on the total losses sustained by the decedent's family, as damages are measured based upon factors such as the age, health, earning capacity, and employment background of the deceased party, as well as the value placed on the loss of spousal and parental emotional support.
